Note Relating to
Cather: In an 1898 article in the Courier, Cather writes: "[Alphonse Daudet] left no novel which, in days to come, will carry the conviction and power of Notre Coeur or Madame Bovary or Cousin Pons."
In an 1894 article in the Journal, in comments on University's staging of Plautus' Captivi, Cather writes: "Mr. Tucker's Ergasilus was nearer like Balzac's Cousin Pons than anything else, and his conception is the conception of Plautus himself. It is a type of gastronomic idealization which could only have existed in the Rome of Plautus and the Paris of Balzac, where artificial tastes had reached undisputed exaltation."
