Question and answer
Read the following excerpt from Willa Cather's "A Wagner Matinee." "She taught me my scales and exercises, too—on the little parlor organ, which her husband had bought her after fifteen years, during which she had not so much as seen any instrument, but an accordion that belonged to one of the Norwegian farmhands. She would sit beside me by the hour, darning and counting while I struggled with the 'Joyous Farmer,' but she seldom talked to me about music, and I understood why. She was a pious woman; she had the consolations of religion and, to her at least, her martyrdom was not wholly
sordid. Once when I had been doggedly beating out some easy passages from an old score of Euryanthe I had found among her music books, she came up to me and, putting her hands over my eyes, gently drew my head back upon her shoulder, saying tremulously, 'Don't love it so well, Clark, or it may be taken from you. Oh, dear boy, pray that whatever your sacrifice may be, it be not that.'" "A Wagner Matinee." Willa Cather, 1904. What does this description of Aunt Georgiana communicate about her? A. She is bitter and angry about her life. B. She wants Clark to carry on her musical talent. C. She loves music and regrets having to give it up. D. She dislikes music because it takes away from her piety.
