Willa Cather
Willa Cather | Hermione Lee
1 post | 2 to read
Hermione Lees provocative and influential biography provides a sensitive reappraisal of a marvelous and often underrated writer. The Willa Cather she reveals here was a Nebraskan who spent much of her life in self-imposed exile from the prairies she celebrated in O Pioneers! and My Antonia, a woman whose life was riddled with the tension between masculine and feminine, and a writer whose naturalness of style disguised exquisite artistry. By exposing the contradictions that lie at the heart of much of Cathers life and work, Lee locates new layers of meaning and places her firmly at the forefront of the modern literary tradition that was taking shape in her time.

Going through my mother‘s things and I came across a box of old postage stamps. “What the heck am I supposed to do with these? Are any of them worth any money? Can I just chuck them?” Then I came across this stamp, issued by the post office in 1973. I‘m sure my mother kept it because her aunt lived with Cather for almost 40 years. Still not sure what to do with some of the ancient stamps, but this one I‘ll definitely keep.

Theaelizabet Wow! That‘s a great story! 6d
