  1. Author: France, Anatole
    Title: Le Lys Rouge
    Date: 1905
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: In a review of The Professor's House in "Historical Essay," the author writes: "In her journalistic days she had highly recommended to her readers [Anatole] France's The Crime of Sylvester Bonnard and lauded his election to the French Academy. She also had praised his novel Thais, and her Pittsburgh friend George Seibel remembered that they had read together France's Le Lys rouge (The Red Lily)." In World and the Parish, the author writes: "She went once or twice a week to read French at the home of her friends, the Seibels, and George Seibel recalled that during these orgies of reading they indulged 'in devil's food cake like Anatole France's Le Lys Rouge.'"
