A Wagner Matinee
Clark Hamilton, raised in rural Nebraska,
has transformed himself; living in Boston,
he has shed all signs of his origins. When
his Aunt Georgiana comes to visit, he is
brought face to face with the contrast between
rural and city life, the painful absence
of music in his aunt's existence on the
windswept prairie, and--most of all--the
understanding that some choices are indelible.
Willa Cather renders the relationship between
nephew and aunt with heartbreaking dignity.
