Not for wide popular sale, though Willa Cather's name will cut a wider swathe than the average "studies of literary personalities and certain aspects of literature" would be apt to do. For the most part of focus is on figures of the past - the near past: Madame Grout, niece of Flaubert; through whom she recaptures a period in Europeans letters; Mrs. James T. Field and Sarah Orne Jewett, figures in the New England literary background a generation ago; Katherine Mansfield, obliquely; Thomas Mann, among current figures. Critical appraisal and commentary, from a leading writer good material for club lists and study groups, as well as students of literature, past, and present. Simple and thoughtful. (Kirkus Reviews)
For Willa Cather, "the world broke in two in 1922 or thereabouts." The whole legacy of Western civilization stood on the far side of World War I, and in the spiritually impoverished present she looked back to that. To that she directed readers of these essays, declaring that anyone under forty years old would not be interested in them. But she was wrong: since its first publication in 1936, "Not Under Forty" has appealed to readers of all ages who share Cather's concern for excellence, for what endures, in literature and in life.
