Willa Cather: Stories

by Willa Cather

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
3 Hrs.


Think of Willa Cather and think of Nebraska - its Divide, its plains, its colors, and awesome horizon lines. Her stories and novels embrace life there in the early 1900s as no other author's works have done, helping to forge her reputation as a major 20th-century writer. "Write what you know," advised Cather's mentor Sarah Orne Jewett, and Cather responded by writing such masterpieces as the novels O Pioneers, My Antonia, and Alexander's Bridge, as well as the short fiction in this collection. Willa Cather: Stories includes "Peter," "On the Divide," "The Sculptor's Funeral," "The Sentimentality of William Tavener," "A Wagner Matinie," and "Eric Hermannson's Soul," and, like all of Cather's writing, is unforgettable in its renderings of the darker tones of American life and the often confounding tenacity of the human spirit.
