The Song of the Lark (Signet Classics)by Willa Cather
Synopses & Reviews
100th Anniversary Edition
Miss Cather, indeed, here steps definitely into the small class of American novelists who are seriously to be reckoned with.”—H. L. Mencken
To reread Cather is to rediscover an arresting chapter in the national past.”—Los Angeles Times
Feisty Thea Kronborg, with her rapturous singing voice, is headed for great things. But her upbringing in a raw, provincial Colorado town has practically stifled her artistic ambitions. Only a few people in Moonstone recognize Theas world-class talent. One of them is Ray Kennedy, who, entranced by Theas voice, hopes to marry her, but is destined to unchain her. Sustained by determination and a pioneers spirit, and inspired by the Native American culture that surrounded her in youth, Thea makes her way in the world. But with loneliness as her constant companion, she comes to realize what sacrifices a true artist must make.
With an Introduction by Melissa Homestead
Thea Kronberg and her singing voice are headed for great things. But her provincial Colorado town has practically stifled her. Her talent and pioneer's spirit takes Thea to New York, even Germany, but with loneliness as her only companion...
About the Author
Born in Virginia in 1873 and raised on a Nebraska ranch, Willa Cather is known for her beautifully evocative short stories and novels about the American West. Cather became the managing editor for McClure’s Magazine in 1906 and lived for forty years in New York City with her companion Edith Lewis. In 1922 Cather won the Pulitzer Prize for One of Ours, the story of a Western boy in World War I. In 1933 she was awarded the Prix Femina Americaine “for distinguished literary accomplishments.” She died in 1947.
