    these three books we excellent! i have not read late 19th century and early 20th century american literature in quite awhile. the language was archaic and quite racist at times. i have always expected that in american literature, but it was not blacks so much but eastern europeons. mexicans were treated quite well for that time, but i loved these 3 novels. willa cather described the back breaking labor that went into farming in nebraska and the surrounding areas so well. i loved my antonia, but these three books we excellent! i have not read late 19th century and early 20th century american literature in quite awhile. the language was archaic and quite racist at times. i have always expected that in american literature, but it was not blacks so much but eastern europeons. mexicans were treated quite well for that time, but i loved these 3 novels. willa cather described the back breaking labor that went into farming in nebraska and the surrounding areas so well. i loved my antonia, but song of the lark is my favorite. i would like to see an essay comparing and contrasting the heroines of both novels. she was able to really show how some people loved the earth and some who weren't and what they did about it. i do have one quibble and it is with amazon for making these classics so big it was 11 inches by 6 inches! that is why it took so long for me to read it! i almost wished i had an ereader!

    Read “My Ántonia”— certainly one of the best works about the American Midwest and frontier values that I have read.

    My favorite of these three was "My Antonia" what a great story and I think it is set in the great state of New Mexico if I remember right? My Dad gave me a collection of stories to read one summer and these were part of them.

    Overall 5 stars for all three stories. If you are interested in the way things progressed in the past and enjoy reading about character development and interpersonal relationships, these stories should satisfy and move you. If you are looking for action, passionate love, and involved catastrophes, they probably are not going to interest you. I found it slow reading because I enjoyed savoring the writing style. I equate these stories with Conrad Richter's "Awakening Land Triology" but all different Overall 5 stars for all three stories.

    Prairie Trilogy My Antonia favorite of the three. Detailed setting and character descriptions pulls the reader into the stories and prairie life. The writing is outstanding, however, storyline of The Song of the Lark too drawn out, resulting in four stars instead of five for the trilogy.

    Loved this book. I guess I never had read it before...so enjoyable to read about a true artist's development and what it was like to live "out west" in the early days of southern Colorado in the sand hills, Denver, Chicago and NYC's opera world. Give it a try! Loved this book.

    Very different style than the modern stuff I've been reading. Finished the first two but needed a break before I tackle the last one. The Song of the Lark got a bit long and I didn't enjoy it as much as O Pioneers. Very different style than the modern stuff I've been reading.

    I fizzled out before finishing...I could not focus on the story as it seemed to just drag on and on. 3.5 stars because I did very much enjoy the first one.

    This book came highly recommended from a friend. I had read My Antonia in school and that was enough to turn me off Willa Cather. I mean, I just didn't care -- and frankly, I was not mature enough to appreciate it. I'm glad I re-read it because it's beautiful and heartbreaking. In this collection, though, my favorite is O Pioneers! Everyone seems to include The Great Gatsby among the "great American novels" but no one mentions O Pioneers! in the same company. They should.

I mean, I just didn't care -- and frankly, I was not mature enough to appreciate it. I'm glad I re-read it because it's beautiful and heartbreaking. In this collection, though, my favorite is O Pioneers! Everyone seems to include The Great Gatsby among the "great American novels" but no one mentions O Pioneers! in the same company. They should. O Pioneers! shows some much about America -- the hard work and determination of immigrants, the longing for a better life, wholesome love versus marriages of convenience, and tragedy....(no spoilers.) If you haven't read it, you must. Song of the Lark is an excellent portrait of a woman struggling to become an artist and dealing with the price of fame. I was able to download this volume for free on my Kindle, but it would have been worth buying. It is certainly worth the investment of time to read (or re-read) these classics.

    I received My Antonia as a gift and I absolutely loved it. Then I saw a hardback edition of this book at CVS of all places. I decided that I definitely needed to read more Willa Cather. While I don't remember much about The Song of the Lark, I do remember that I loved O Pioneers as much as My Antonia. I have to admit that I was very disappointed in the Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation with Neil Patrick Harris. My Antonia has a gentleness and softness about it, but the movie was just plain slow I received My Antonia as a gift and I absolutely loved it.

    Book group summer 2018. My Antonia is a classic for a reason. Fabulous look at life of the time. A must read, do yourself a favor. Oh Pioneers less compelling but still a worthy read however Song of the Lark I found to be a painstakingly long character study w little reference to history or surroundings. Could not wait to finish it and move on. I believe this was Cather’s attempt at something different and it had nowhere near the enthralling images and history of My Antonia.

    3.5 stars. I liked this book, I only read My Antonia right now. I would have given it 4 if I had known how the female author fit into the town (because I am anal like that) and if Jim and Antonia's life had been more intertwined in someway. But I did like the ending, happy. Sometimes the story did seem a little choppy. 3.5 stars. I liked this book, I only read My Antonia right now.

    My Antonia a gem. Beautiful stories of life on the prairie in the early 20th Century. My Antonia is a gem! It celebrates the lasting effects of our childhood friendships, and warm memories of home. I lost interest in the middle story once "the Lark " left her hometown and wandered far afield. This was my first encounter with Willa Cather, and I would willingly read more My Antonia a gem. Beautiful stories of life on the prairie in the early 20th Century. My Antonia is a gem!

    Amazing! I grew up on the prairie, and she expresses so eloquently it's beauty, the harshness and reality of that life. I loved all 3 books and saw some parallels in my early life experiences. I was a gift for me to finally read some of Cather's work. Amazing! I grew up on the prairie, and she expresses so eloquently it's beauty, the harshness and reality of that life.

    Another excellent novel by Willa Cather. A tragic novel in the early American West. I liked the way groups of immigrants were portrayed. They seemed be drawn from Ms. Cather's own life experiences. Another excellent novel by Willa Cather. A tragic novel in the early American West. I liked the way groups of immigrants were portrayed.

    I would recommend all three books to any one who needs a good well written heart warming eventful story. My Antonia is probably my favorite and I'm usually not one to re-read books but, it was even better the second time. Willa Cather has a gift.

    Historical fiction. Excellent storytelling of personal lives combined with the reality of European settlers inhabiting Nebraska before the turn of the 20th century, under the Homestead Act.

    Part of the Great Plains Trilogy: O Pioneers! (my favorite of the three), Song of the Lark (the most descriptive take-you-there of the three), and Alexander's Bridge. All excellent books.

    Willa Cather must have been a beautiful person to write such characters. Her flowing descriptions of the frontier landscape are stunning.
