Willa Cather My Antonia by Cather, Fiction, Classics


The narrator reflects with wistful, unjudgmental melancholy on his family, the experience of growing up in the midst of only partial tamed vastness, the humanity and folly of those around him and above on on the captivating immigrant girl Antonia, whom he must always love from afar. My Antonia is full of the quiet losses of a life full of difficult decisions, but also the quiet satisfactions of goodness cherished despite all hardship.

Willa Cather My Antonia


'My Antonia' was first published in 1918. It was Willa Cather's fourth novel and her first recognized masterwork. The book follows the parallel stories of Antonia Shimerdas, a Bohemian immigrant, and the orphan Jim Burden, viewing their lives from childhood to middle age, and allowing the author to reveal the glories and hardship of farm life on the vast American Plains, from the joys of an early spring day to the tragedy of suicide. Literary essayist H L Mencken considered Cather an extraordinary novelist: "'My Antonia' is the best piece of fiction ever done by a woman in America...I know of no novel that makes the remote fold of the western farmlands more real..." , an appraisal that is as valid now as when it was first penned in 1920.

Willa Cather My Antonia


2011 Reprint of 1918 Edition. "My Ántonia" was enthusiastically received in 1918 when it was first published. It was considered a masterpiece and placed Cather in the forefront of women novelists. Today it is considered her first masterpiece. Cather was praised for bringing the American West to life in her fiction and for making it personally engaging for the reader. It also served to promote regional American literature as an important part of mainstream literature. While interpretations vary, "My Ántonia" is clearly an elegy to those families who built new lives west of the Mississippi River and highlights the role of women pioneers in particular. Cather also makes a number of comments concerning her views on women's rights and some interpreters have suggested the use of disguised sexual metaphors in the text. It remains a classic text in American literature.

Willa Cather Youth and the Bright Medusa by Cather, Fiction, Short Stories, Literary, Classics


Cather published Youth and the Bright Medusa, a collection of her short fiction, in 1920. According to Alfred Knopf, Cather had been displeased with the dull brown covers of O Pioneers! and My Antonia and upon seeing the bright blue Chinese cloth Knopf had purchased to cover other hardcovers, immediately handed him the manuscript of Youth and the Bright Medusa. Also in Knopf's belief, Willa Cather cared nothing for how much she would be paid for her work, but rather for fame and positive attention.This collection contains the following stories: "Coming, Aphrodite!" aka "Coming, Eden Bower!" "The Diamond Mine" "A Gold Slipper" "Scandal" "Paul's Case" "A Wagner Matinee" "The Sculptor's Funeral" "A Death in the Desert"

Willa Cather Alexander's Bridge by Cather, Fiction, Classics, Romance, Literary


Alexander stood six feet and more in the archway, glowing with strength and cordiality and rugged good looks. There were other bridge-builders in the world, certainly -- but it was always Alexander's picture that the Sunday Supplement men wanted, because he looked as a tamer of rivers ought to look. Under his tumbled sandy hair his head seemed as hard and powerful as a catapult, and his shoulders looked strong enough in themselves to support a span of any one of his ten great bridges that cut the air above as many rivers.At the pinnacle of his career, Bartley Alexander stands proudly in the public eye. Yet for those who know him well, a certain mystery lingers about him -- some strange aspect of his past well hidden from view . . . something, perhaps, that might even shake the mightiest of engineering triumphs.Willa Cather, a journalist, editor and traveler born in 1876, established her place in the literary world with the publication in 1912 of Alexander's Bridge, her first novel. Her later masterpieces included My Antonia and Death Comes for the Archbishop.

Willa Cather One of Ours


Willa Cather’s One of Ours (1922) may have won a Pulitzer Prize, but it remains one of her most controversial novels. What, her critics ask, does a woman know about war? Inspired by the death of her cousin G.P. Cather in the fighting of WWI, Cather traces the trajectory of protagonist Claude Wheeler from Nebraska farmer to U.S. soldier. Based on G.P.’s own letters and Cather’s meticulous research, One of Ours asks readers to confront the harsh realities of war through Claude’s experiences. Joining the army allows Claude to escape his bitter life, but what he finds in war is no less disappointing.
