Excellent introduction to My Ántonia from the Norton Critical Edition

Seth and I have both enjoyed Sharon O’Brien’s Introduction to My Ántonia in the Norton Critical Edition.  O’Brien gives a most helpful overview of Cather’s process of writing and the history of the books publication;  then she tracks the fascinating shifts in critical opinions from the day of publication to the present moment. You’ll find a link below to a PDF of O’Brien’s essay.  I will also bring hard copies of the piece to our meeting on Saturday.       – Tom
