"My Antonia"

posted by .

A new critc reading "My Antonia" would find many components worth consideration, like Cather's lush descriptions of the prarie and vivid portrayls of living with only the barest essential. Wite a formal paragraph to this question- Analyze the importance of the crossroads where Mr. Shimerda is buried as a metaphor for either Antonia's or Jim's future.

Please be sure to post your paragraph when you get it written. We'll be happy to give you feedback.
