REVIEW My Ántonia 108 SUMMARY á eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Willa Cather Alor of spirit that no hardship can daunt or break When Jim Burden sees her again after many years he finds her a rich mine of life a figure who has turned adversity into a particular kind of triumph in the true spirit of the pioneer. Here lie glorious character sketches Be sure to pay your respects I dragged my feet I came late to the party I regret itThis is one of those books I ve known about for ages but was ignorant and flat out mistaken about its subject matter A friend in college wrote a poem based off of it and my impression from that experience was that My Antonia was about a man describing a woman for the length of an entire novel That would be a gross oversimplification of the book It s so much than thatIt s one of the stories that America is founded upon Immigrants who ve left their homeland on the promise of a better life in the new world The new world America in this case meant the far midwest those lonely plains at the foot of the Rockies The immigrants this time around are Czechs referred to as Bohemians in the novel Some of them didn t start out in this country with much and lived a hardscrabble life once they arrived Ah what people are willing to endure for the hope of something better I cherish books like this and The Jungle or The Grapes of Wrath where immigrants or earlier Americans gave it their all for the dream and often died trying Whether it s victory or defeat it doesn t matter it s the struggle that counts Fiction this may be but the story is a real one My own family came to America from Finland about the same time this book is set They farmed the land and found hard times but they survived Hearing those stories is a true marvel to behold Willa Cather tells her own truly marvelous tales in My Antonia Her people are born from precision craftsmanship that refrains from the ponderous grocery list descriptions of physical traits and habits of characters that other writers indulge in Instead Cather cuts to the essence of the person with excellent word choice time and again planting in the reader s mind fruitful full color images of exactly who she s talking about As alluded to at the start of this review this novel is all about the character sketches They move the story much the same way as Sherwood Anderson s Winesburg Ohio However since the characters come alive and are so very lively the lack of a hard driven singular plot is no hinderance to one s enjoyment of My Antonia
