    Bohemian Songs

  1. Title: Bohemian Songs
    Genre: song
    Note Relating to Cather: In My Antonia, Antonia "was always singing them queer Bohemia songs...." In "The Bohemian Girl," Johanna Vavrikas sings many Bohemian songs while her neice Clara plays the piano and Joe Vavrika plays the fiddle. In "The Diamond Mine," Blasius Bouchalka says that the publishers, "They not want Bohemian songs. They not want my music. Even the street cars will not stop for me here."
