About the Author
Willa Cather (1873-1947), the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of more than fifteen books, is widely considered one of the major fiction writers of the twentieth century. She grew up in Nebraska and is best known for her depictions of frontier life on the Great Plains in novels such as O Pioneers!, My Ántonia, and Song of the Lark. In 1944 she was awarded the American Academy of Arts and Letters Gold Medal for Fiction. She won the Pulitzer Prize in 1923 for One of Ours.
Reviews
"[Willa Cather] is saying the most interesting, most profound things about the art of writing, and the life of art, that have been said in our time certainly, and she does it with immense grace and dignity."--Katherine Anne Porter, New York Times
"Like her novels...her criticism has an impeccable distinction of style--it is a criticism démeublé, uncluttered by jargon or pedantry."--Nation
