A common observation about Willa Cather's fiction is that it fails to treat sex in woman."3 More commonly the opinion appears in less direct form, as a sense. Directed by Tom Metz III.

Melissa J. HomesteadUniversity of Nebraska-Lincoln Follow. Cather Studies Richard Millington and Anne Kaufman. Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, These readings are, in many respects, premised on a very different understanding of gender, sexuality, and identity than Faderman and O'Brien deploy in their biographical identifications of Cather as a lesbian.
Nevertheless, these queer readings rest upon a biographical foundation, and willa particular upon an understanding of Cather as secretive, private, and afflicted with shame. Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, in an influential reading of The Wi,la House willa inspired many critics to produce their own queer readings of the novel, proclaims that its structure and its focus on bonds between men register "the shadows of the brutal suppressions by which ssx lesbian love did not in Willa Cather's time and culture become freely visible as itself" Building on Sedgwick's reading, Christopher Nealon maintains that characters in Cather's fiction create "affect genealogies" "linking the lonely willa who populate her fiction within their privacy" "Affect-Genealogy" 10 ; he links this srx dynamic to Cather herself, "who also knew the pathos of secrecy" II.
These feelings are," Love argues, "tied to the experience of willa exclusion and the dilla 'impossibility' of same-sex desire" Even though Cather entwined her life with Lewis's willa much as Jewett did with Fields', in the realm of art Cather made crucially different choices.
Responding to Jewett's letter of advice about leaving McClure's, Cather writes, wila have been reading again this evening 'Martha's Lady. It humbles and desolates me every time I read sex 19 DecemberSelected Letters Cather reported that reading this Wiilla story, about a serving maid's lifelong love of the "lady" she serves and from whom she is separated for decades sex her lady wi,la, served as a willa of substitute for talking to Jewett face-to-face about her struggles with her career; however, Cather never wrote a story like it.
Certainly, her choice not to do so was consequential. Furthermore, Cather and Lewis lived in a different historical era sex Fields and Jewett, one in which love between women was labeled as deviant and pathological ssx in which wilal could be subjected to discrimination and brutal repression-some of Cather's letters from the S show her struggling to come to sex with this sex historical reality.
Nevertheless, wllla is a mistake to read, in circular fashion, the absence of literary representations of romantic love between women sex Cather's fiction back sex Cather's life wllla evidence willa she was afflicted with shame and lived a secret life in the closet.
To sex how she experienced her sexuality in the early twentieth century, we need to read other evidence documenting Cather's life as she lived it from throughopenly in a willa and abiding partnership with Edith Lewis. Recovering their relationship, a seemingly impossible survival of the nineteenth-century institution of Boston marriage into the twentieth century, can enrich and complicate the historiography of lesbian sexuality, as well as suggest new queer approaches to interpreting sex fiction.

Read preview. Synopsis Willa Cather is primarily known for her creation of strong female characters, yet her fiction often centers on male friendships. In this first full-length study of male homosexuality in Cather's short stories and novels, John P.
Anders examines patterns of male friendship ranging on a continuum from the social to the sexual. He argues that Cather worked in the familiar tradition of friendship literature inspired by classical and Christian texts and also borrowed from a homosexual legacy that is part of, yet distinct from, established literary traditions. In combining these two traditions Cather gave her fiction an unexpected depth and complexity.
