A Cathedral Courtship, published in 1893, is a short story where comical situations, love, and artistic descriptions abound. The protagonist, Katharine, is a young lady from New York who travels to Europe accompanied by an aunt. On the trip she meets Jack Copley, a North American architect, who again and again contrives ways to meet her until he succeeds in declaring his love. The protagonists are the narrators and, alternating in the first person, they tell their story with that distinct fine humor and the ironic-comic tone that entertains and makes the story enjoyable. Logically, it reflects a vision of the woman of that time.
