Cather, Willa: My Antonia. v1. 10 July 2007

My favorite Cather novel.
Quote:
The story of Antonia Shimerda is told by on of the friends of her childhood, Jim Burden, an orphaned boy from Virginia. Though he leaves the prairie, Jim never forgets the Bohemian girl who so profoundly influenced his life. An immigrant child of immigrant parents, Antonia's girlhood is spent working to help her parents wrest a living from the untamed land. Though in later years she suffers betrayal and desertion, through all the hardships of her life she preserves a valor of spirit that no hardship can daunt or break.When Jim Burden sees her again after many years he finds her ""a rich mine of life"," a figure who has turned adversity into a particular kind of triumph in the true spirit of the pioneer.
Quote:
"No romantic novel ever written in America, by man or woman, is one half so beautiful as My Antonia."--H.L. Mencken
With Illustrations By W. T. Benda
