Description

Honoring and celebrating the immigrant settlers of the American plains, Cather's novel also succeeds as one of the finest romantic stories written in the United States. The story is poetic and historical, semi--autobiographical and "of the earth." My Antonia fills you with a gale of inspiration and pride in the stuff of the American ---- and a woman's ---- soul. This concise supplement to Willa Cather's My Antonia helps students understand the overall structure of the novel, actions and motivations of the characters, and the social and cultural perspectives of the author.show more
