The Short Stories Of Willa Cather, Paperback / softback Book

The Short Stories Of Willa Cather Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback


This rich selection of Willa Cather's short fiction is drawn from every period of her writing life, and mixes the little known with the much anthologised.

Here we have a range of stories from short, vivid sketches to novellas.

They tell of the bitter lives of Nebraskan immigrants, and of the pull between provincial America and the cosmopolitan world of art; some of the most poignant deal with the challenges and dilemmas for the American artist.

Her marvellous late stories are charged with beautifully controlled feeling, and eloquently describe the tensions and complications of family life.

Cather also let herself go in these stories in ways she did not in the longer fiction, with harsh satires of New York, chilling glimpses of the supernatural, and strong expressions of sexual feeling.

These are stories that add immeasurably to our perception of Cather's range and complexity.
