Using the interdisciplinary methods of American studies, Willa Cather in Context presents surprising correspondence between Cather and other intellectuals of her time, including the social scientist Thorstein Veblen and the literary critic Van Wyck Brooks. Reynolds links Cather's major work to the key issues of early-twentieth-century America: immigration and assimilation, evolutionary theory, the role of science, theories of progress. The result is an account of a writer who was far more engaged with her cultural milieu than has previously been suggested.show more
