  1. Author: Dumas fils, Alexandre
    Title: Camille
    Date: 1848
    Genre: drama
    Note Relating to Cather: Cather writes in a Hesperian review: "A great play is a great experience. To have seen Clara Morris as Camille is an experience not to be regarded lightly or soon forgotten." In "A Death in the Desert," Katherine Gaylord likens her coughing entrance to meet Everett Hilgarde as "the traditional Camille entrance, and in "The Treasure of Far Island" Douglass Burnham's Sunday School teacher once put a copy of Camille on the church Christmas tree for Douglass. In My Antonia, Jim Burden and Lena Lingard are entranced by a dramatic production of Camille. In a 1901 Journal article, Cather writes that she saw Sarah Bernhardt's performance of Camille at the end of her 1901 D.C. season.
