Homework Help: literature

Posted by jenny on Thursday, September 3, 2009 at 12:18pm.

Just as My Ŕntonia’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 Ŕntonia 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?
