*Use the novel My Antonia to discuss how Willa Cather critiqued American society in the early 20th century, especially in relation to
issues of ethnicity, gender, and class. Be sure to discuss not only the literary structure and organization of the work but how it
reflects Cather’s historical setting (i.e., time and place). Finally, discuss the significance and relevance of the novel in reflecting
American culture of the time. * Will write lucid, organized essays utilizing an introductory paragraph (with thesis statement), body with supporting specific historical examples , a concluding paragraph, and standard English grammar and style.
