Animal KingdomAnimal Kingdom"Pavel Chichikov sees the natural through the mystical eyes of the supernatural....This is to see things as they are meant to be seen. It is to see God's presence in the weaving of a spider's web or in the flight of a bird. It is to see as Gerard Manley Hopkins saw. It is to paint inscapes. It is to see truly."

Bergson is the first of Cather's great heroines, but the land, or, as Cather calls it, the "wild land," is also an immensely important character...  In O PIONEERS! descriptions of the land are so evocative, lush, and moving that they provoked writer Rebecca West to say: "The most sensuous of writers, Willa Cather builds her imagined world almost as solidly as our five senses build the universe around us."
Poem of the New Creation, APoem of the New Creation, A"In its lyrical intensity, its mastery of literary techniques and artistic structure, so rich in many perceptive allusions to biblical, theological, historical and literary sources, this poem is indeed a "new creation:" at once traditional and original, a fresh revelation of how the dark confusions in mankind's temporal condition can be transfused through the voice of Christian grace and prophecy from its sorrowful tragedy into the joyous comedy of redemption." (Peter J. Stanlis)
