    Lamb, Charles

  1. Author: Lamb, Charles
    Title: Dramatic Essays (Lamb)
    Date: 1891
    Genre: nonfiction
    Note Relating to Cather: In a letter to Helen Seibel, Cather says that Lamb's essays are the best she has ever read in English on the theater. In Alexander's Bridge, Sarah Frost's husband compliments Hilda Burgoyne by implying that she is probably one of the very few actresses of the day who would have Lamb's approval.

  2. Author: Lamb, Charles
    Note Relating to Cather: Of Victor Herbert, Cather says that "to ask for inspired composition or for irreproachable interpretation from him is, to reverse Charles Lamb's simile, like asking for champagne at a mutton shop."
