Willa Cather's novels were neglected after her death, but a new generation of readers has greeted her work with enthusiasm. This feminist study, which draws extensively on Cather's unpublished letters, analyses how she overcame the difficulties which beset a woman writer in the mid-West during the early part of the century. It shows how her absorption in European culture influenced her perception of America and enabled her to produce some of the most compelling literature of modern times. Susie Thomas's highly readable account will be welcomed by all those studying Cather's work. Contents: Willa Cather 1873-1947; To Bayreuth and Back Again:^R The Troll Garden, The Song of the Lark, One of Ours, Uncle Valentine; From Horse Opera to Homesteads: O Pioneers!; The Golden Girl of the West: My Antonia; Time's Fool and A Lost Lady; To Speak of the Woe That is in Marriage: The Professor's House; The Chemistry of Colour: Death Comes For the Archbishop and Shadows on the Rock; Testimony: Obscure Destinies, Sapphira and the Slave Girl, The Old Beauty and Others
