Example text

To suggest something deeply upsetting has a greater effect than actually coming out and saying it, because then the reader isn舗t just a passive listener anymore. He sees things through the author舗s eyes. Katherine Mansfield, one of the few female writers Cather publicly admired for her 舠singular beauty ... powerful slightness ... and even deeper tenderness舡 (舠Katherine Mansfield,舡 in Not Under Forty), wrote from a similar place of exile, trying continually in her stories to recapture her New Zealand childhood from the chilly distance of her London rooms.

We see the frozen, rutted road that is the town舗s main street; the 舠squat red railway station,舡 the town舗s few businesses, which cater mostly to the outlying farms: a drugstore, a feed store, two general stores, a bar, and a post office. , and all the storekeepers are back from lunch, but except for a few farmers and their wives and horses, shivering under blankets, hardly anyone is around. In film it舗s called the 舠money shot,舡 the tracking shot at the beginning of the film that shows us everything in one exquisitely choreographed camera move: where the film takes place, the nature of the drama, the types of people in it.

He舗ll never get her back! It is through this single incident that Cather introduces the novel舗s four main characters. The heartbroken little boy, Emil, is Alexandra Bergson舗s youngest brother. Emil is the only one of Alexandra舗s three brothers who possesses sympathy, passion, and imagination, qualities that eventually become the grown-up Emil舗s tragic flaws, through a story that unwinds with the inevitability of Greek tragedy or allegory. But for now Alexandra, leaving the town doctor舗s office, strides out onto the windy boardwalk street and bends down to help her brother.
