About this book

My Ántonia (first published 1918) is considered one of the greatest novels by American writer Willa Cather. My Ántonia, pronounced with the accent on the first syllable of "Ántonia," is the final book of the "prairie trilogy" of novels by Cather, a list that also includes O Pioneers! and The Song of the LarkMy Ántonia follows an orphaned boy, Jim, and a Bohemian immigrant child, Ántonia, upon their introduction to Nebraska as pioneers. The novel depicts the struggles and successes of the pair throughout their lifetime. The first edition of My Ántonia in 1918 opened with an introduction depicting a conversation on a train that was later cut from the novel in a revised 1926 edition by Houghton Mifflin

Summary

My Antonia, first published 1918, is one of Willa Cather's greatest works. It is the last novel in the Prairie trilogy, preceded by O Pioneers! and The Song of the Lark.My Antonia tells the stories of several immigrant families who move out to rural Nebraska to start new lives in America, with a particular focus on a Bohemian family, the Shimerdas, whose eldest daughter is named Antonia. The book's narrator, Jim Burden, arrives in the fictional town of Black Hawk, Nebraska, on the same train as the Shimerdas, as he goes to live with his grandparents after his parents have died. Jim develops strong feelings for Antonia, something between a crush and a filial bond, and the reader views Antonia's life, including its attendant struggles and triumphs, through that lens.
