My Ántonia (Dover Thrift Editions)

Willa Cather


My Ántonia conjures up the Nebraska prairie lifetime of Willa Cather's early life, and commemorates the spirit and braveness of immigrant pioneers in the US. 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 family members of Bohemian emigrants. Her tale is instructed during the eyes of Jim Burden, a neighbor who will befriend Ántonia, educate 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 might hold her during the demanding situations she faces while she strikes to the town. yet basically while she returns to the prairie does she recuperate her power and regain a feeling of goal in existence. within the quiet, probing intensity of Willa Cather's artwork, Ántonia's tale turns into a mobbing elegy to these whose patience and energy helped construct the yank frontier.
