Cather Canon and the Politics of Reading

Cather  Canon  and the Politics of Reading Author Deborah Carlin

What makes Willa Cather such an anomaly in American literature, and why are her late fictions so rarely read in high school and university classrooms? What is it exactly that renders them unclassifiable in the prevailing critical assessments of Cather's work? Why, in other works are these writings so difficult to interpret? Deborah Carlin addresses these and other questions by examining the ways in which certain reading communities have placed--or, more often, ignored--Cather's complex and unsettling post-1925 fiction within canonical formulations. Employing interpretive strategies drown from narratology, feminism, and deconstruction, Carlin focuses on five female-centered late fictions; My Mortal Enemy (1926), Shadows on the Rock (1931), "Old Mrs. Harris" in Obscure Destinies (1932), $ (1935), and Sapphira and the Slave Girl (1940). She argues that Cather's later works have been largely overlooked for two reasons: they confound reader expectations by revising conventional fictional forms; and they raise troubling questions about race, class, sexuality, and power, especially with regard to women. What makes Carlin's work distinctive, besides its focus on Cather's most problematic writings, is its theoretical approach to issues of narrative and gender. Rather than chart Cather's intellectual biography through the texts, as others have done, Carlin shows how the late fictions reflect self-conscious experimentation with narrative form and, at the same time, reveal ambiguous, sometimes contradictory, feminist impulses.

Every year on the Fourth of July, Jeeters wife Lou struts in the town parade wearing suspenders made of jumper cables with a tow chain around her waist. Those in the knowwhich means everyone in townchuckle at Lous silent commentary on her husbands skill as an automotive mechanic. But Jeeter has a different perspective: Thats my wife right there, he tells a stranger. She knows cars. Author Bill Schubart brings to life the friends and characters of his native Lamoille County, where in the late 1950s and early 1960s, life was lived close to the earth and often against the grain. Schubarts collection of twenty-two stories captures Vermont in its transition from an enclave of hill farms and small towns where everyone knew your grandfather to a place where vehicles bearing license plates from away mix with hippie vans filled with born-again Vermonters getting back to the land]until snowfall. Its a time and place where the Jeeters of The Lamoille Stories rub elbows with the ladies of the Uplift Club, all to the fiddle accompaniment of Qubcois music played by people whose conversations often weave French and English together in a single sentence. Schubarts full-hearted and compassionate evocation of this Vermont is by turns poignant, funny and savory. The stories give readers a good excuse to stay up too late to discover how Wyvis will circumvent the new Vermont prohibition on having more than three junk cars in your yard or how Charlie is going to get Edgar to pay him for his new chimney. Schubarts thoroughly enjoyable short story collection is as finely etched as the frost crystals on your winter window. Amusez-vous bien! Bill Schubarts Vermont stories of a mostly-forgotten time and place arefresh, authentic, funny in places and sad in others. He knows his corner of the Green Mountains inside out and writes with honesty and grace about its people. Howard Frank Mosher, author of Disappearances, Mary Blythe, and On Kingdom Mountain

In Career Stories, Juliette Rogers considers a body of largely unexamined novels from the Belle Époque that defy the usual categories allowed the female protagonist of the period. While most literary studies of the Belle Époque (1880–1914) focus on the conventional housewife or harlot distinction for female protagonists, the heroines investigated in Career Stories are professional lawyers, doctors, teachers, writers, archeologists, and scientists. In addition to the one well-known woman writer from the Belle Époque, Colette, this study will expand our knowledge of relatively unknown authors, including Gabrielle Reval, Marcelle Tinayre, and Colette Yver, who actively participated in contemporary debates on women's possible roles in the public domain and in professional careers during this period. Career Stories seeks to understand early twentieth century France by examining novels written about professional women, bourgeois and working-class heroines, and the particular dilemmas that they faced. This book contributes a new facet to literary histories of the Belle Époque: a subgenre of the bildungsroman that flourished briefly during the first decade of the twentieth century in France. Rogers terms this subgenre the female berufsroman, or novel of women's professional development. Career Stories will change the way we think about the Belle Époque and the interwar period in French literary history, because these women writers and their novels changed the direction that fiction writing would take in post-World War I France.

We are familiar with its symptoms: hot flashes, night sweats, and more. While menopause triggers physical changes, it also brings forth spiritual issues that, for many women, mark a redefinition of the feminine self. To address the impact of menopause, Gabriele Kushi has created a practical guide to dealing with this special time. The author first provides a clear understanding of the overall process of menopause, from biological changes to emotional challenges. She then offers research-based nutritional guidelines that can help relieve menopausal symptoms, as well as healthful kitchen-tested recipes based on a natural foods diet. However, it is the stories and portraits of twenty menopausal women that are the heart and soul of the book. Here is a true companion for any woman who wants to nurture her own spiritual growth, adopt a natural foods diet, and enjoy good health throughout the midlife years.
