    My Friend from India

  1. Author: Du Souchet, H.A.
    Title: My Friend from India
    Date: 1896
    Genre: drama
    Note Relating to Cather: "The author spends some pains to prepare for a pathetic situation..., and then he apparently forgets about it and never emphasizes it at all.... There is no objection to a comedy lacking the serious element altogether, but why does the playwright introduce it at all unless he intends to make something of it? There are a number of such aimless experiments in the play. The comedy moreover is dragged in by the hair and does not always evolve naturally from the situations." Cather deems the "funniest thing thing in the play" to be Tillie.
