"The fact that I was a girl
never damaged my ambitions to be a
pope or an emperor."
Hmmm...can't say that being the pope
or an emperor was ever one of my ambitions...
How about you???
Willa Cather (1873-1947) was an American novelist known for her novels
set in frontier life...
She wrote from the perspective of a man, rather than the female perspective
and was quite critical of the female authors of the period...
referring to them as "overly sentimental and mawkish."
(isn't that a great word...mawkish?)
She received the Pulitzer Prize in 1922 for One of Ours.
Have you read any of her works???
Check back on Wednesday for my favorite
version of our Emperor!!!
