Synopsis

With honesty and tenderness, Jim Burden recounts the life of his Ántonia—the free-spirited Bohemian girl who captured his heart and his imagination from their first encounter as young children.

My Ántonia was critically acclaimed when it was first published in 1918, and was often hailed as a masterpiece, helping build author Willa Cather’s reputation as an important American writer in the early twentieth century. The novel starkly represents the lives of those who cultivated the land and society of the American West, and was the third and final book of Cather’s “prairie trilogy” which also included the novels O Pioneers! and The Song of the Lark.

About Willa Cather

See more books from this Author
A Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Willa Cather’s work was profoundly influenced by her upbringing in rural Nebraska. During her young adulthood Cather proved herself intelligent and capable, initially training for a career as a medical doctor, but discovered a love of, and talent for, writing while attending the University of Nebraska. Following graduation, Cather worked as a journalist for several women’s magazines before becoming a high school teacher; an opportunity work as an editor at McClure’s provided Cather with her first chance to publish as the magazine serialized her first novel, Alexander’s Bridge, to critical acclaim. This was soon followed by works that have since become best-loved American classics, including My ntonia, The Song of the Lark, and her Pulitzer-Prize winner, One of Ours. Cather died in 1947 at the age of 73.
