Product Description
These reading questions cover all five sections of Willa Cather's 1913 novel, O Pioneers! Questions, for the most part, concern plot details and thematic development, especially the novel's Romantic landscape and focus on redemption. There are 5-9 questions per section, suitable for homework or in-class discussion. (Sections III and IV are lumped together, as they're shorter.)

I also have a number of Socratic Seminar questions I use with this particular novel, focusing especially on Cather's portrayal of women, and women in turn-of-the-century American literature, more broadly--don't hesitate to shoot me an e-mail if you'd like them!
