Historical essay and notes by John J. Murphy - Textual editing by Charles W. Mignon with Frederick M. Link and Kari A. Ronning
The Willa Cather Scholarly Edition presents ground breaking research, establishing a new text that reflects Cather's long and deep involvement with her story. The historical essay traces the artistic and spiritual development that led to its writing. The broad-ranging explanatory notes illuminate the elements of French, Mexican, Hispanic, and Native American cultures that meet in the course of the narrative; they also explain the part played by the land and its people-their history, religion, art, and languages. The textual essay and apparatus reveal Cather's creative process and enable the reader to follow the complex history of the text.
