Willa. Cather's. Lucy. Gayheart. LINDA CHOWN In making "the case" of Willa
Cather's modernism, Phyllis Rose focuses upon Cather's writing through Death
Comes for the Archbishop, which she evaluates as "the most daring and
innovative of Cather's works" and interprets as the one that "perfectly embodies
the antiillusionist aesthetic which many of her early books strove for" (Rose 138).
While serving well to demonstrate Cather's modernism, such a focus leaves its
story incomplete.

Lucy Gayheart, however, is not a cheerful novel produced by a mind moored
serenely in a snug harbor. It is instead a story of death and blasted hopes, a tale
that explores the dark Gothic underside of life, a novel revealing its author's
darkening vision. It is also distinctly the work of an aging novelist who began her
seventh decade of life during its composition. In a very general sense it returns to
the materials of The Song of the Lark, beginning and ending in a fictional Red

1 When in the spring of 1933 Willa Cather began writing Lucy Gayheart, both her
parents had died and the Cather home in Red Cloud had been sold. Though
Cather had not lived permanently in Red Cloud since she had gone to Lincoln to
attend the university in 1890, it had remained the place to which she returned
frequently. These visits had been the focus of her year, as writing each morning
was of her days, and the loss of the one profoundly affected the other. At Grand

Peter's reverence for the instrument — and his yearning for the "old world"
Bohemian culture the family had left behind — seem incomprehensible to Antone

in the "new world." At least twenty of Cather's other short stories and all twelve of
her novels involve musicians and/or music, specifically Western music, either
directly or indirectly. Two of the latter, The Song of the Lark (1915) and Lucy
