Description

A revisioning of Cather's position as a writer in retreat from her age and society, offering new contexts for novels such as My -ntonia and O Pioneers! . Reynolds (English and American literature, U. of Kent) draws on archival and primary sources to find Cather in lively correspondence with social scientist Thorstein Veblen and literary critic Van Wyck Brooks and links Cather's work to many salient 20th century issues such as immigration, evolutionary theory, and theories of progress. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
