A lost lady by Willa Cather( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1923, A Lost Lady is one of Willa Cather's classic novels about life on the Great Plains. It harkens back to Nebraska's early history and contrasts those days with an unsentimental portrait of the materialistic world that supplanted the frontier. In her subtle portrait of Marian Forrester, whose life unfolds in the midst of this disquieting transition, Cather created one of her most memorable and finely drawn characters. The Willa Cather Scholarly Edition of A Lost Lady is edited according to standards set by the Committee for Scholarly Editions of the Modern Language Association. A wide range of biographical, historical, and textual information about the novel is presented. A selection of archival photographs illuminates the connection between the photographs illuminates the connection between the novel and the people and places from Cather's formative years in Nebraska

The song of the lark by Willa Cather( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Willa Cather?s third novel, The Song of the Lark, depicts the growth of an artist, singer Thea Kronborg. In creating Thea?s character, Cather was inspired by the Swedish-born immigrant and renowned Wagnerian soprano Olive Fremstad, although Thea?s early life also has much in common with Cather?s own. Set from 1885 to 1909, the novel traces Thea?s long journey from her fictional hometown of Moonstone, Colorado, to her source of inspiration in the Southwest, and to New York and the Metropolitan Opera House. As she makes her own way in the world from an unlikely background, Thea distills all her experiences and relationships into the power and passion of her singing, despite the cost. The Song of the Lark presents Cather?s vision of a true artist
