About Book

Book Description
We must not look at Goblin men We must not buy their fruits; Who knows upon what soil they fed Their hungry thirsty roots?

Download Description
Paul had just come in to dress for dinner; he sank into a chair, weak in the knees, and clasped his head in his hands. It was to be worse than jail, even; the tepid waters of Cordelia Street were to close over him finally and forever. The grey monotony stretched before him in hopeless, unrelieved years; Sabbath-school, Young People's Meeting, the yellow-papered room, the damp dish-towels; it all rushed back upon him with sickening vividness.

The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
Collection of eight short stories about artists and the arts by Willa Cather, published in 1920. Four of the stories were reprinted from Cather's first collection, The Troll Garden (1905). The stories include "Flavia and Her Artists," in which an artist exploits a benefactor; "The Garden Lodge," about a woman who suppresses her artistic impulses in exchange for a well-ordered life; "A Wagner Matinee," in which a nephew witnesses his aunt's communion with music; and PAUL'S CASE, Cather's most famous short story. The remaining four stories--"Coming, Aphrodite!," "The Diamond Mine," "A Gold Slipper," and "Scandal"--all concern opera singers.
