    The Girl I Left Behind Me

  1. Author: Belasco, David
    Title: The Girl I Left Behind Me
    Date: 1893
    Genre: drama
    Note Relating to Cather: "The severest criticism that can be passed upon any play is to say that it is fundamentally and organically false. No plays merit that charge more truly than those of David Belasco.... He would probably excuse his timid little Sunday school emotions by saying that they are realistic. Well, that sort of Howells' realism goes very well at home in a wrapper and an easy chair, but we need something more vivid to recompense us for sitting three hours in a cramped opera chair with our tight clothes on."
