Sample text

Jim loves the quiet grave because of the spirit of superstition and conciliation that put it there and the spirit of kindness that would not permit anyone in the future to drive over it. Commentary Mr. Shimerda’s death is the first major turning point in the novel. Ántonia has lost the one person who supported her most; her father was her role model, the family member to whom she was closest. Now she is in danger of coming under the influence of her mother and Ambrosch. In retrospect, we can see Cather is implying that Mr.

Ambrosch brought the news to the Burdens in the middle of the night and now is asleep on a bench behind the stove; when he wakes, he sits nervously, fingers his rosary, and prays incessantly. After breakfast, Grandfather, Grandmother, Jake, and Ambrosch leave for the Shimerdas’ while Otto heads for town to bring back the priest and coroner. Alone in the house, Jim thinks about what he’s learned of Mr. Shimerda’s origins. He wonders if Mr. Shimerda’s soul is resting here in the Burden home, feeling warm and secure, before beginning its long journey home to Bohemia.

At noon the next day, Otto returns from Black Hawk with Anton Jelinek, a young Bohemian farmer who has come to help his fellow countrymen. The coroner will arrive later that afternoon, Otto says, but the priest is at the other end of his parish. Jelinek explains how difficult the suicide and the lack of absolution are to the Shimerda family. Otto begins to build a coffin, and neighbors begin to stop by to pay their respects. Neither the Catholics nor the Norwegians will allow Mr. Shimerda to be interred in their cemeteries.
