"She Had Never Humbled Herself": Alexandra Bergson and Marie Shabata as the "Real" Pioneers of "O Pioneers!"
Werden, Douglas W.
Great Plains Quarterly, v22 n3 p199-215 Sum 2002
If we consider "O Pioneers!" in relation to the gender role redefinitions of Willa Cather's adult life, we discover a work that is not primarily about homesteading pioneers, but rather about two women who are pioneers in crossing socially constructed gender barriers.
