Note Relating to Cather

In "Eric Hermannson's Soul," Margaret Elliot is said to belong to the new order that replaces the old: "'The old order changeth, yielding place to new...." (from Idylls of the King).

In an 1894 Journal article,Cather quotes "The Passing of Arthur" (from Idylls of the King), II.408-410, in a defense of modern drama: "Old order changeth, yielding place to new/ And God fulfils Himself in many ways,/ Lest one good custom should corrupt the world."

Cather reviewed "The Passing of Arthur" for the Nebraska State Journal in 1895.
