Willa Cather's letters to be published next month
O Revelations! Letters, Once Banned, Flesh Out Willa Cather
Though Willa Cather expressly stated in her will that she did not wish her letters to ever be published, Andrew Jewell and Janis Stout are doing just that now that the last executor of Cather's estate has died.
The editors admit that it is "that publication of the letters “flagrantly” violates Cather’s wishes, expressed in a will that partially expired in 2011 with the death of her nephew and second executor, Charles Cather. But publication, they argue, advances the deeper purpose of Cather’s restrictions: cementing her status as a major literary artist."
I love Cather, but part of me (probably the attorney part) finds this really distasteful. Either way, no stopping it now.
