Note Relating to Cather

In a 1902 Gazette article, Cather writes: "But the days when Mr. Carman gave us Songs from Vagabondia are past, and his later work, though sometimes baffling, is usually sincere and often noble."

In a 1896 Journal article, Cather considers Caman's poetry to have improved as he matured: On Songs from Vagabondia by Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey: "While the lyrics therein could scarcely be called evidences of genius, they were so fresh, so untrammeled, so free from any flavor of imitation, that they proved conclusively that up in Canada two young men were finding out nature for themselves."
