The Song of the Lark

Autor Willa Cather
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 24 sep 2004 – vârsta de la 14 ani

A novelist and short-story writer, Willa Cather is today widely regarded as one of the foremost American authors of the twentieth century. Particularly renowned for the memorable women she created for such works as "My Antonia" and "O Pioneers ," she pens the portrait of another formidable character in "The Song of the Lark." This, her third novel, traces the struggle of the woman as artist in an era when a women's role was far more rigidly defined than it is today.
The prototype for the main character as a child and adolescent was Cather herself, while a leading Wagnerian soprano at the Metropolitan Opera (Olive Fremstad) became the model for Thea Kronborg, the singer who defies the limitations placed on women of her time and social station to become an international opera star. A coming-of-age novel, important for the issues of gender and class that it explores, "The Song of the Lark" is one of Cather's most popular and lyrical works."

Notă biografică

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Willa Cather (1873-1947) spent her formative years in Nebraska, which was at that time frontier territory. Her exposure to the region's dramatic environment and intrinsic hardships - along with its diverse population of European-Americans, Native Americans, and immigrants - shaped and informed much of her fiction.

Recenzii

"This authoritative edition of Cather's perhaps least understood novel is a welcome addition to the Willa Cather Scholarly Edition, begun under the general editorship of Susan Rosowski and now under that of Guy Reynolds. The Song of the Lark is important for taking the portraits of European immigrants in the US in O Pioneers! and adding the element of art as it traces the evolution of Thea Kronborg from small-town girl to opera singer acclaimed in Chicago, New York, and Europe. . . . Embellished with handsome photographs and presented in an easy-to-read format, this is a necessary edition for any scholar of Cather."—N. Birns, Choice
