The Cambridge Companion to Willa Cather

Cambridge University Press, 2005

This volume offers thirteen original essays by leading scholars of a major American modernist novelist. Willa Cather's luminous prose is 'easy' to read yet surprisingly difficult to understand. The essays collected here cover the full range of Cather's career, including most of her twelve novels, situating her work in a broad range of critical, cultural, and literary contexts. Lindemann's introduction explores current trends in Cather scholarship as well as the author's place in contemporary culture.
