The most recent Opera News has a double-page spread on opera in literature.  Cather is of course prominent, with the biggest photo going to Olive Fremstad.  Keeping company with Poe, Hawthorne, Twain, Irving, Alcott, and Melville.  Also a list of newer books like Bel Canto, Cold Mountain, & Fellow Travelers that have been adapted into operas--and most impressively, Fire Shut Up in My Bones.
Only subscribers get access, unfortunately.

Here is something i thought you all would be interested in seeing. 
This is from the Sierra Club's daily email "Daily Ray of Hope", and undoubtedly you will know where the Cather quotation below comes from, I don't.
