Read full description of the books:



In this study in introspection, Willa Cather tells the story of a scholarly professor in a Middle Western university, passing through the critical, uneasy period between middle age and old age. Reluctant to move into a new, more comfortable house, he remains in the old room he has been used to working in, despite the protestations of his wife and daughters. The reader finds him a aman in his middle fifties at the zenith of his intellectual powers -- yet now suffering the dislocations of a life that has changed too quickly, too harshly. English author J. B. Priestley provided an introduction to this edition.

Read information about the author

Ebook The Professor's House read Online! Wilella Sibert Cather was born in Back Creek Valley (Gore), Virginia, in December 7, 1873. Her novels on frontier life brought her to national recognition. In 1923 she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for her novel, One of Ours (1922), set during World War I. She grew up in Virginia and Nebraska. She then attended the University of Nebraska, initially planning to become a physician, but after writing an article for the Nebraska State Journal, she became a regular contributor to this journal. Because of this, she changed her major and graduated with a bachelor's degree in English. After graduation in 1894, she worked in Pittsburgh as writer for various publications and as a school teacher for approximately 13 years, thereafter moving to New York City for the remainder of her life. She traveled widely and often spent summers in New Brunswick, Canada. In later life, she experienced much negative criticism for her conservative politics and became reclusive, burning some of her letters and personal papers, including her last manuscript. She was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1943. In 1944, Cather received the gold medal for fiction from the National Institute of Arts and Letters, an award given once a decade for an author's total accomplishments. She died of a cerebral hemorrhage at the age of 73 in New York City.
