    One thought on “The Bohemian Girl: Stories”

    1. When Willa Cather was writing about the Nebraska prairie and it s early settlers, especially it s emigrant settlers, she was at her very best That s evident in her novel My ntonia, which I consider to be her best, and also in this beautifully written short story Cather makes the reader feel the power of the place , the pull it has on it s inhabitants, and their loyalty to family That loyalty of place, family, and the love of a young couple are the heart of this story It s one of my Cather favori [...]

    2. This is one of Willa Cather s short stories Nils Ericson gets off the train at his hometown after being away for many years.The reader will see that there is not a lot of emotion or affection in the family They are quite reserved and distant Nils is very attached to his little brother Eric who is now in his teens but remains indifferent to his two older brothers.I am seeing a pattern with Cather s writing love sought, love lost or love conquered intermixed with despair and tragedy.In this story, [...]

    3. Her teeth were large and square, and set far apart teeth that could tear Folks, this is why I read Willa Cather for descriptions like this Simple, clean, and incisive Ha She gives such a great sense of the plains states a hundred years ago I loved every single one of the stories in this collection.

    4. A good collection of her earlier short stories I had read 3 or 4 of them in another collection The title short story, The Bohemian Girl, was my favorite and definitely had shades of My Antonia in it.

    5. I enjoyed this far than I anticipated I don t have much experience with short stories, but I loved the small scale of Willa Cather s prose The Bohemian Girl was the best of the stories, though I loved A Wagner Matinee as well.

    6. This was my first Willa Cather read and I found it interesting that she describe the land with such beauty and passion but the people of the story were very bland I was very surprised to find that I did enjoy reading the story inspite of the fact that the people were so dispassionate.

    7. I really enjoyed the last, and title, story in the book, The Bohemian Girl I started a few others but got bored with them, so I didn t really read any others.
