ID : 56739   
« back to classes page
"Flaming like the wild roses, singing like the larks over the plowed fields, flashing like a star out of the twilight.” Willa Cather is recognized as one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, giving a voice to the American Spirit. She captures a sense of place, as she immerses us in the Nebraska landscape. A Pulitzer-Prize winning author for One of Ours, her novel about war, critics have increasingly identified Cather as a canonical American writer, the peer of authors like Hemingway, Faulkner and Wharton. We will sample her short fiction in three stories, all available on-line from the University of Nebraska/Lincoln. “Paul’s Case: A Study in Temperament” https://cather.unl.edu/writings/shortfiction/ss006,  “The Bookkeeper’s Wife” https://cather.unl.edu/writings/shortfiction/ss047 and  The Joy of Nelly Dean" https://cather.unl.edu/writings/shortfiction/ss014.
