"Historians as well as Cather scholars will find this new work useful and informative."-The Virginia Quarterly Review * The Virginia Quarterly Review * "The Professor's House (1925) is arguably Willa Cather's most important novel of the 1920s. Thematically, the book is exceptionally far ranging. . . . [It] offers a portrait of conspicuous consumption occasionally reminiscent of Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. . . . An achievement worthy of the masterpiece at its center, the Willa Cather Scholarly Edition of The Professor's House is a major addition to Cather studies."-Steven Trout, Great Plains Quarterly -- Steven Trout * Great Plains Quarterly *
