“No romantic novel ever written in America . . . is one half so beautiful as My &Aacute;ntonia.” —H. L. Mencken

Widely recognized as Willa Cathers greatest novel, My &Aacute;ntonia is a soulful and rich portrait of a pioneer womans simple yet heroic life. The spirited daughter of Bohemian immigrants, &Aacute;ntonia must adapt to a hard existence on the desolate prairies of the Midwest. Enduring childhood poverty, teenage seduction, and family tragedy, she eventually becomes a wife and mother on a Nebraska farm. A fictional record of how women helped forge the communities that formed a nation, My &Aacute;ntonia is also a hauntingly eloquent celebration of the strength, courage, and spirit of Americas early pioneers.

Gordon Tapper is Assistant Professor of English at DePauw University. He is the author of The Machine That Sings: Modernism, Hart Crane, and the Culture of the Body, from Routledge.
