Moody Landscape In the book My Antonia First Vintage Classics Edition 1994 the landscape along with Jims reactions to it helps us to feel all the emotions of the scene His feelings of loneliness sadness awe and happiness are felt through his words and we can form a picture from the descriptions adding to what we already know He feels these emotions in the first few scenes All because he wants a place to call home The feelings we get when Jim arrives are awe with hints if loneliness He pulls into town and is being taken to his grandparents house He is riding in a wagon and since he is having trouble sleeping and tries to look at the land and sees nothing This can be seen in the lines There was nothing but land not a country at all but the material out of which countries are madeI had the feeling that the world was left behind that we had got over the edge of it and were outside mans jurisdiction I had never before looked up and at the sky when there was not a familiar mountain ridge against itI did not believe that my father and mother were watching me from up there they would still be looking for me at the sheepfold down by the creek I had left their spirits behind me I did not say my prayers that night here I felt what would be would bePg 11-12 We see that Jim is a state of awe He does not see this place as land or a country but the building blocks for such things He thinks he is in the heavens not on the planet He feels like he is in his own universe The landscape adds a sense of loneliness as well He looks at the land and there is nothing he can hold onto so he will know where he is
