Abstract:

Death Comes For The Archbishop shares a limitless, craggy beauty with the New Mexico landscape of desert, mountain, and canyon in which its central action takes place, and its evocations of that landscape suggest why Willa Cather is acknowledged without question as the most poetically exact chronicler of the American frontier. Told with a directness that overlays its profound artistry, this story of the nineteenth century missionary priest Father Latour and his work of faith in the wilderness shines from within by virtue of its clear devotion to the human idea. Introduction by A.S. Byatt. The archbishop in Santa Fe aids in the growth and development of the Southwest.
