    My Literary Passions

  1. Author: Howells, William Dean
    Title: My Literary Passions
    Date: 1895
    Genre: nonfiction
    Note Relating to Cather: In an 1895 Journal article, Cather writes: "'Passions,' literary or otherwise, were never Mr. Howells' forte and surely no man could be further from even the coast of Bohemia....Doesn't Mr. Howells know that at one time or another everyone raves of Don Quixote, imitates Heine, worships Turgenev and calls Tolstoi a prophet?" In an 1899 Leader article, Cather criticizes the "pedantic, autocratic, exclusive flavor" of My Literary Passions.
