April Twilights and Other Poems Hardback
One of the foremost American novelists of the early twentieth century, Willa Cather (1873-1947) was born in Virginia but grew up in Nebraska.
Before she wrote the novels that would make her famous, she was known as a poet, the most popular of her poems reprinted many times in national magazines and anthologies.
In such lyrical poems as `Prairie Dawn', `The Hawthorn Tree,' `Going Home' and `Winter at Delphi', Cather exhibits both a finely tuned sensitivity to the beauties of the physical world and a richly symbolic use of the landscapes of myth.
The themes that were to animate her later masterpieces found their first expression in these haunting, elegiac ballads and sonnets. Cather's O Pioneers! and My Antonia are already available in Everyman's Library.
