Death Comes for the Archbishop
Jim Severance & Les Longden
September 26 - October 2, 2021
In the Cather oeuvre, this novel is among the best. The setting is New Mexico, the time the 1850’s. French missionaries are sent to bring Christianity to the Indians. We get from Cather the splendor of the place; the hardships of the missionary life; the Indians approach to life…spectacular beauty and culture clash. This is a rich, rewarding story irrespective of whatever feelings you have about missionaries.
Students should get the Vintage Classics (paperback) edition.
Class will meet from 9-11 am and 3-5 pm.
Jim will contact students prior to class.
