Great Books III – Willa Cather

Willa Cather novels are typically set in the prairies of the Midwest.  She wrote novels, short stories, and poetry, winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1922 for One of Ours.  Cather’s writing is carefully crafted and still compelling today.  Try My Antonia if you’ve never read her and Death Comes for the Archbishop for a more challenging read.

My Antonia by Willa Cather. Slow, but beautiful. Cather really knew how to write, how to depict something so eloquently that you start seeing everyday things (like grass) in a new light. My Antonia was a great example of her work and a story of just life and people.
