Just as My Àntonia’s setting is initially raw and featureless, its narrative at first seems haphazard: “I didn’t arrange or rearrange. I simply wrote down what of herself and myself and other people’s, Antonia’s name recalls to me. I suppose it hasn’t any form.” Is Burden’s description accurate? Although the narrative proceeds chronologically, its structure is unconventional, as Àntonia is present in only three of the five sections and much of her story unfolds via exposition. What effect does Cather produce by telling her story in this fashion?
huge book report to do!

Here are some websites that give you ideas about what to include, although I think the questions above do a pretty good job.
Be sure to repost when you have your ideas written up; then someone here will be able to comment on your write-up.
