Wister, Owen , Scharnhorst, Gary

The Virginian

€ 8.95

Still as exciting and meaningful as when it was written in 1902, Owen Wister's epic tale of one man's journey into the untamed territory of Wyoming, where he is caught between his love for a woman and his quest for justice, has exemplified one of the most significant and enduring themes in all of American culture. With remarkable character depth and vivid descriptive passages, The Virginian stands not only as the first great novel of American Western literature, but as a testament to the eternal struggle between good and evil in humanity, and a revealing study of the forces that guide the combatants on both sides.Pocket Books' Enriched Classics present the world's greatest literature enhanced for the contemporary reader. This edition of "The Virginian" has been prepared by Gary Scharnhorst, professor of English at the University of New Mexico. It includes his introduction, notes, a selection of critical excerpt s, and suggestions for further reading, as well as a unique visual essay of period illustrations and photographs.
