    Note Relating to Cather: When Cather was a grader for the University of Nebraska's prep school, she told Alvin Johnson that Madame Bovary was a book "worth committing to memory." In an article in 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."
