My Ántonia (Dover Thrift Editions)

Willa Cather


My Ántonia conjures up the Nebraska prairie lifetime of Willa Cather's youth, and commemorates the spirit and braveness of immigrant pioneers in the USA. considered one of Cather's earliest novels, written in 1918, it's the tale of Ántonia Shimerda, who arrives at the Nebraska frontier as a part of a relations of Bohemian emigrants. Her tale is informed throughout the eyes of Jim Burden, a neighbor who will befriend Ántonia, train her English, and keep on with the extraordinary tale of her life.
Working within the fields of waving grass and tall corn that dot the nice Plains, Ántonia forges the sturdy spirit that may hold her during the demanding situations she faces whilst she strikes to the town. yet in basic terms while she returns to the prairie does she get better her power and regain a feeling of objective in lifestyles. within the quiet, probing intensity of Willa Cather's paintings, Ántonia's tale turns into a mobbing elegy to these whose endurance and power helped construct the yankee frontier.
