Introduction

(This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Classic? includes a glossary and reader's notes to help the modern reader contend with Cather's allusions and vocabulary.

My Ántonia, Willa Cather's vivid portrayal of immigrant life on the American prairie during the nineteenth century, has been a favorite since it first appeared in 1918. The harsh?yet forgiving?land, the growth and maturity of Jim Burden, the narrator, the intriguing characters, and the force of Ántonia's strength all combine to make this novel exceptional.

Cather's style perfectly depicts the sparseness of the prairie and the desolation of the immigrants? existence in winter and comes alive when the glory and beauty of spring emerge.

Whether you see it as a love story, an indelible portrait of a wise, enduring female character, or a coming-of-age novel, My Ántonia is deserving of its respected place in American literature.

Wonderful book discussion. All members enjoyed the book but related in different ways. Discussion rarely veered from book.
