Mulas, Francesco Gesuino (2010) Cather's The professor's house and T.S. Eliot's The waste land: a comparative study. Annali della Facoltà di Lingue e Letterature Straniere di Sassari, Vol. 7 , p. 237-243. ISSN 1828-5384. Article.
In The professor's house, Willa Cather makes us readers painfully aware of the sterility of modern civilization much as Eliot does in The Waste Land. Further more, she implies that the best and noblest acts of the human spirit are never processes of innocence, but come rather in opposition to innocence. It could well be that Cather's fundamental opinion is that the best of men and women have developed where work, patiente, and human suffering have been a significance part of life.
