  1. Author: Browning, Robert
    Title: Luria
    Date: 1846
    Genre: drama
    Note Relating to Cather: In an 1899 Courier article, Cather writes: "For the trained manager is a sort of trained nurse for discouraged genius.... Like Browning's Luria, he is fashioned to do the work of all his several friends, and answer every purpose save his own." In an 1894 Journal article, Cather writes: "If [the artist] has the courage he throws off the yoke of management, if not the strength to work leaves him, and he drifts on,/ Doing the work of all his several friends/ And serving every purpose except his own"; Cather is quoting Browning's Luria.
