Over de Auteur

Willa Siebert Cather was born in 1873 in the home of her maternal grandmother in western Virginia. Although she had been named Willela, her family always called her "Willa." Upon graduating from the University of Nebraska in 1895, Cather moved to Pittsburgh where she worked as a journalist and toon meer teacher while beginning her writing career. In 1906, Cather moved to New York to become a leading magazine editor at McClure's Magazine before turning to writing full-time. She continued her education, receiving her doctorate of letters from the University of Nebraska in 1917, and honorary degrees from the University of Michigan, the University of California, Columbia, Yale, and Princeton. Cather wrote poetry, short stories, essays, and novels, winning awards including the Pulitzer Prize for her novel, One of Ours, about a Nebraska farm boy during World War I. She also wrote The Professor's House, My Antonia, Death Comes for the Archbishop, and Lucy Gayheart. Some of Cather's novels were made into movies, the most well-known being A Lost Lady, starring Barbara Stanwyck. In 1961, Willa Cather was the first woman ever voted into the Nebraska Hall of Fame. She was also inducted into the Hall of Great Westerners in Oklahoma in 1974, and the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca, New York in 1988. Cather died on April 24, 1947, of a cerebral hemorrhage, in her Madison Avenue, New York home, where she had lived for many years. (Bowker Author Biography) toon minder

Korte biografie
Wilella "Willa" Cather was born on her maternal grandmother's farm in Back Creek Valley, near Winchester, Virginia.

A year later, she moved to Pittsburgh to work as a magazine editor and theater critic. From 1901 to 1906, she taught high school English. During this time, she published April Twilights (1903), a book of poems, and The Troll Garden (1905), a collection of short stories. At age 33, she moved to New York City.

Besprekingen

Helaas de Nederlandse "vertaling" van Onyx Translations geen vertaling van The Song of The Lark. Het is een één op één overzetting van Engelse in Nederlandse woorden, vaak met een verkeerde betekenis in de context, waardoor een onleesbare tekst ontstaat.

Bij de eerste zin gaat het al mis, in het het origineel staat: "Doctor Howard Archie had just come up from a game of pool with the Jewish clothier and two travelling men who happened to be staying overnight in Moonstone." en dat wordt: "Dr. Howard Archie was zojuist uit een poolspel met de joodse clothier en twee reizende mannen die overnachten in maansteen overnachten"....… (meer)
