Cather, Willa. My ntonia. New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1995. Foreward by Kathleen Norris.

In an essay on My ntonia, the American writer Wallace Stegner says, For Jim not only, as narrator, carries the burden or tune of the novel; he carries also the cultural burden that Willa Cather herself carried, the quintessentially American burden of remaking in the terms of a new place everything that make life graceful and civilized. Discuss this concept of remaking as part of the burden of the narrative.
