Homework Help: american literature

Posted by Jenny on Tuesday, September 1, 2009 at 11:17pm.

When Jim arrives in Nebraska, he sees “nothing but land: not a country at all, but the material out of which countries are made.” Yet at the novel’s end the landscape is differentiated. It has direction and color – red grass, blue sky, dun-shaded bluffs. We are reminded of the beginning of the Book of Genesis, and of God’s parting of the heavens from the earth. To what extent is My Àntonia an American Genesis? What are its agents of creation and differentiation?

This is the last question I have to answer!
