Willa Cather's novels were neglected after her death, but a new generation of readers has greeted her work with enthusiasm. This feminist study, which draws extensively on Cather's unpublished letters, analyses how she overcame the difficulties which beset a woman writer in the mid-West during the early part of the century. It shows how her absorption in European culture influenced her perception of America and enabled her to produce some of the most compelling literature of modern times. Susie Thomas's highly readable account will be welcomed by all those studying Cather's work.
