Publisher Description:
"This early novel is now held to be a very critical and pivotal one in the whole development of the novelist, and this new edition provides . . . a fine printing for readers".-Choice. "A definitive edition of Cather's second novel . . . [that] sets a high standard of quality. . . . David Stouck's comprehensive and cogent historical essay . . . captures not only the life of Cather's text but also provides insight into Cather's imagination and artistic process".-Western American Literature. This is the definitive text of O Pioneers! that appeared in the clothbound Willa Cather Scholarly Edition published by the University of Nebraska Press in 1992. Adhering to the standards set by the Committee for Scholarly Editions of the Modern Language Association, the editors have been faithful in every detail to Cather's intentions as she prepared the manuscript for the first 1913 edition. Printer's errors, spelling of some foreign names, and inconsistencies in dialect and certain stylistic matters, as well as Cather's later corrections, have all been addressed and corrected. Cather's novel of life on the Nebraska frontier was a critical and popular success (over forty printings) and still speaks to readers today. Susan Rosowski and Charles Mignon are professors of English at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Kathleen Danker is an assistant professor of English at South Dakota State University. David Stouck is a professor of English at Simon Fraser University.
