"No romantic novel ever written in America, by man or woman, is one half so beautiful as My Antonia."

In this symphonically powerful and magnificently observed novel, Willa Cather created one of the most winning heroines in American fiction, a woman whose robust high spirits and calm, undemonstrative strength make her emblematic of the virtues Cather most admired in her country. We first meet Antonia Shimerda as the young daughter of a Bohemian immigrant who in time will be driven to suicide by the oceanic loneliness of life on the Nebraska prairie. Through the eyes of Jim Burden, her tutor and disappointed admirer, we follow Antonia from farm to town and through hardships both natural and human, surviving everything from poverty to a failed romance-and not only surviving, but triumphing.

In the end Antonia is exactly what Burden says she is: a woman who "had that something which fires the imagination, [a woman who] could . . . stop one's breath for a moment by a look or gesture that somehow revealed the meaning in common things."
