Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0452007143, Paperback)This group of short stories was the first collection Willa Cather had published. All of these are studies of people in the arts or relating to the arts.
Since this was originally published in 1905, the arts at that time included painters, writers, musicians, and stage actors. The stories are not about the artists themselves, but rather the people around them or who related to them.
"A Wagner Matinee". The tale was written in the first person by the nephew whose aunt was visiting Boston for the first time in 30 years from the farm life of Nebraska. She had been a music teacher in the East before her marriage. After her marriage, she moved west and could devote little time to her music or its appreciation. On her visit, her nephew takes her to the theater.
