This popular Cather novel has a slightly different feel than her other novels Godfrey St Peter, the professor, has a cynical outlook on his future, his relationship with his wife, his two married daughters and their husbands, and especially the new house they are moving into St Peter wants his old house, his old study, and his memories Especially the memories of his old student and friend, Tom Outland The middle section of the book about Outland s earlier life in the American west was perfect Ca [...]

I can t remember and that s not saying much, as my memory s not what it used to be the last time I dithered so long before writing a review Perhaps it s because I ended up strongly identifying with the professor, who is the same age as I am No, I don t have the issues with my spouse or my adult offspring that he does, but there are other things that can make one feel distant and drained even temporarily at such a time in life.The title notwithstanding, this book could also be called Outland that [...]

I ve recently started listening to a few reading book podcasts, now that I m almost two years into my own I ve grown quite fond of The Readers and Books on the Nightstand, and the four hosts of the two shows have some interaction They will all be at Booktopia this month, and each of them picked a favorite book to discuss that will hopefully also turn into a podcast episode for those of us not at the event This was one of the books mentioned, selected by Thomas from The Readers It s funny how boo [...]

Willa Cather has moved into my group of favorite authors those who create characters and worlds that are consistently intriguing, human, interesting in the best sense of the word, and real She also writes in a way that is both simple and beautiful The Professor s House is my third of her books, after Death Comes for the Archbishop and, recently, O Pioneers.In this novel, the titled Professor is actually conflicted, caught between two worlds, that of his old house with the study he has used to w [...]

A beautifully written story with many undertones to it On the surface it appears a story of family life, quite mundane really but there are hidden depths here Wonderful characterisation of all the characters I felt not just Godfrey St Peter, even the periphery characters all had their time on the page.A gentle novel, but heartfelt and reflective.

Willa Cather pops the big question How do wekeep living when there s nothing to look forward to Midwest prof in his 50s has finished his book.With 2 married daughters, a bizee wife and thememory of a prized student killed in WW1, hescalpels his soul He knew that life is possible, may even bepleasant, without joy, without passionate griefs.But it had never occurred to him that he might haveto live like that.

I would say that this is a very clean novel The characters are respectful, their dialogues are polished, and there s not a hint of any major mischief in the plot Professor Godfrey St Peter is fifty two He has two married daughters and a wife Lillian of many years He teaches and writes history books His family is financially secure, one of his daughters is even rich, having been the beneficiary of his St.Peter s former student s posthumous wealth from a gas related invention this former student, [...]

I actually read this before I have a habit of re reading books I like during the summer Why Who knows I read this for a grad class on Cather and it blew me away Strangely intense little book At first, it doesn t seem to be about much, but it s worth a close reading.Her best known books O Pioneers, My Antonia aren t really her best They are often taught at the high school level, and I think people often think of her as slight But some of her books, like The Professor s House, pack a real intellec [...]

A beautifully introspective little novel, in The Professor s House Cather introduces us to Godfrey St Peter a mid western university professor St Peter and his family have lived for many years in an ugly though rather loved house which they are finally moving out of their two daughters married and off their hands, finally Mrs St Peter can have the house she has dreamed of As the contents of the old house are moved into the new house, the Professor remains in his study in the old house surrounded [...]

Well, this was very pleasant and all, buthave you ever heard of a bridge version of a book Don t feel bad if you haven t I just made it up What it is is you know how there are abridged versions of books, where they include the important and exciting parts and chop out some of the meandering and tangential stuff Have you ever wondered what happens to that stuff they chop out Well, that ends up in a bridge version of the book, and that must be the version I read because nothing fucking happened.

On the face of it, Professor Godfrey St Peter has a good life As Cather s novel opens, he is married, with two grown daughters, Rosamund and Kathleen, who are also married He has for many years taught at a small college in Ohio, where he is respected and esteemed He has produced his magnum opus a multi volume work on the Spanish explorers of North America which has won him a distinguished literary prize With the money from that prize, St Peter has built his wife Lillian a grand new home.But ther [...]

Regelmatig deed dit boek me denken aan het veel recentere en door mij erg graag gelezen boek The Sense of an Ending van Julian Barnes, ook al is de verhaallijn helemaal anders Blijkbaar ligt de thematiek man van middelbare leeftijd overschouwt zijn leven me wel.Aanrader dus voor mensen die net als ik houden van een elegant geschreven boek over dit thema, en het melancholisch gevoel van verlies dat daarmee gepaard gaat.

This is my first Willa Cather book and I am not sure I will read another The first chapter was boring, but the book picked up after that Professor St Peter is a successful professor and author He seems to have a successful marriage with two married daughters But St Peter is not content or satisfied with what he has accomplished He starts reviewing his life and finds he has lost an essential part of himself.I found there were pieces of the story line that just disappeared without resolution One s [...]

Another wonderful novel by this author my second I ve read a short story by her Her descriptions of landscapes are second to none and how she describes light shining is like an artist painting a picture I cannot wait for my next Willa Cather book.Thanks to Tom, who I buddy read this with via often very long messages, and who is far articulate and scholarly than me.

The Professor s House is essentially an exploration of change and regret Godfrey St Peter, is a professor at a small mid western college He has reached a transition point where he has completed his life s work a multi volume history called Spanish Adventurers in North America , achieved a considerable amount of recognition and status in his field, and finally has the funds to build a new house for his wife But as the time comes to move to the new house, St Peter is and reluctant to leave the o [...]

My first Willa Cather This is an engaging story with interesting and believable characters, and maybe a slightly unexpected ending It is not always crystal clear what the main characters really feel about each other, but some clarity emerges as the story goes on and I found my opinion about some of the characters changing as I got to know them better The second section of the book is a story within the story, and seeing how it relates to the rest of the novel requires a little work This section [...]

I m having a hard time deciding how to review The Professor s House The plot itself is very straightforward and easy to describe The characters are vivid and well defined which adds to the realism of the novel But it seems to me that the meat of this novel is in the themes and nuances.I have read some of Cather s short stories many years ago and only have vague memories of them other than a memory that she had exquisite attention to detail As I read this book I found that memory to be true The w [...]

Read this in college, but this time it s for book club I love Willa Cather That said, I am a bit conflicted about this book She had a plot line developing, revolving around some tensions between the two daughters of the professor, a potential lawsuit over the fortune amassed by Rosamund or was it Rosalind And then she interrupts this developing plot to go into some background about Tom Outland, which I didn t mind but when she took up telling about life in Hamilton again she decided NOT to resol [...]

I bought this book intending to put it into the Postal Book Group 7a circulation in the coming year I chose it because a podcaster I admire called it one of his favorite books of all time But, having read it, I think I won t be mailing it out I finished last night with genuine admiration, but did not find it an easy book to engage with and struggled even to continue after the first few chapters.I am a Willa Cather fan and loved My Antonia, O Pioneer, One of our Own, and multiple short stories by [...]

My first Willa Cather.I may have lost my taste for classics, this seems like a relic to me It will be interesting to hear from Thomas Otto why it is his favorite book All the while reading I could picture myself in freshman English class with an assignment to write an essay about the symbolism of St Peter s inability to move house.Anyway, I found it a bit of a slog but it was a short read and I m glad I finally finished it.Just to show that there is value in every book, this Booktopia selection [...]

It s a really unusual book in how it s told it constantly thwarts your expectations of what it s actually about It starts in the present and goes backwards, suddenly switching from a story about a bourgeois family in Hamilton and their affairs to a bona fide adventure tale of exploration and stupendous discovery set in the surreally gorgeous wilderness of the South west That latter story, told in splendid lyrical prose that pays reverential respect to nature s beauty and humankind s capacity for [...]

I m not sure what I think of this book It is listed on two different 1000 books to read before you die lists But I really don t see what all the fuss is about.It is not a bad book, and it is written beautifully In the second section of the book, you get a real sense of the Southwest New Mexico And the part set in DC is very evocative of the bureaucracy that runs through that town But, the plot what there is of it just did not speak to me But the writing is so well done, I will want to read anoth [...]

I came to the works of Willa Cather by way of my father, who was a deep admirer of her books, especially after he read The Song of the Lark I knew that Cather wrote about the immigrant experience, but after having finished The Professor s House, I realized that her talent in capturing the nuances of the human experience was not solely limited to the immigrant life It was just one slice of the pie that she happened to address There is so much to her books than I had judged, and admittedly, The P [...]

The story starts when the Professor and his wife Lillian buy a new house, and the Professor does not want to move into his new residence He continues to maintain a study in the old house where he is writing a history of the Spanish explorers This part of the book tells about his relationships with the people in his family who seem to be very involved in acquiring material possessions.The second part of the book is told in the voice of the brilliant Tom Outland, the Professor s favorite student T [...]

I really enjoyed The Professor s House, even though it s not something I would normally read Cather has a beautiful style of writing and capturing emotions thoughts and moments that are difficult to put into words I felt similarly about My Antonia Even though not much happens plot wise in either of these novels and The Professor s House really centers on events that happened in the past, it was a beautiful read because of the sense of emotion and nostalgia it manages to capture My favorite passa [...]

I ve just read The Professor s House for the first time, and to my surprise it seems to be Willa Cather s best I had assumed that her wonderful Death Comes to the Archbishop was her best, but I was delighted by The Professor s House A friend described this book as Cather s psychological novel, and so it is Professor St Peter is in love with the life of the mind As he ages, he discovers that is his main love, greater than his love for his family.His wife and older daughter seem to be shallow, and [...]

I wish it would have been just a little longer to tell us what happens when the family returns Does he stay at the old house Does something develop with Augusta I do believe his wife loves him but I would have him eventually in a relationship with Augusta and going to live at Tom s Blue Mesa on Cliff City Also, what happened to Tom s friend many other questions I liked that the story was divided into three parts I liked all the characters but Godfrey was my favorite I would have liked to find ou [...]
