Note Relating to Cather
Reviewed Belasco's The Wife for Nebraska State Journal on 9/25/1895. Comparing Belasco's The Wife to his Men and Women in the Leader in 1897: "To me, this change in Miss Trueman's affections has very much the same disastrous effect that the fact of the hero's actual criminality has in Men and Women. Yet of the two plays, the situations in The Wife are not so forced, the characters are more human, and are not so entirely given over to the baleful influence of YMCA emotions" (Leader, 11/23/1897).
