Interweaving introspection with political commentaries, biography with history, The Promised Land (1912) brings to life the transformation of an East European Jewish immigrant into an American citizen. Mary Antin recounts the process of uprooting, transportation, replanting, acclimitization, and development that took place in my own soul, and reveals the impact of a new culture and new standards of behavior on her family.

A feeling of divisions—between Russia and America, Jews and Gentiles, Yiddish and English—ever-present in her narrative, is balanced by insights, amusing and serious, into ways to overcome them.

In telling the story of one person, The Promised Land illuminates the lives of hundreds of thousands. This Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics edition includes eighteen black-and-white photographs from the books first edition and reprints for the first time Antins essay How I wrote The Promised Land."You ladies go to church to learn how to get along in the world, I suppose, and your piety sheds respectability on us.

If I did go at all, I would go where Mammy goes; there's something THE PROMISED LAND keep a fellow awake there, at least. " "What. those shouting Methodists. Horrible!" said Marie. "Anything but the dead sea of your respectable churches, Marie. Positively, it's too much to ask of a man. Eva, do you like to go. Come, stay at home and play with me. " "Thank you, papa; but I'd rather go to church.

" "Isn't it dreadful tiresome?" said THE PROMISED LAND. Clare. "I think it is tiresome, some," said Eva, THE PROMISED LAND I am sleepy, too, but I try to THE PROMISED LAND awake. " "What do you go for, then?" "Why, you know, papa," she said, in a whisper, "cousin told me that God wants to have us; and he gives us everything, you know; and it isn't much to do it, if he wants us to.

It isn't so very tiresome after all. " "You sweet, little obliging soul!" said St. Clare, kissing her; "go along, that's a good girl, and pray for me. " "Certainly, I always do," said the child, as she sprang after her mother into the carriage. Clare stood on the steps and kissed his hand to her, as the carriage drove away; large tears were in his eyes.

"O, Evangeline. rightly named," he said; "hath not God made thee an evangel to me?" So he felt a moment; and then he smoked a cigar, and read the Picayune, and forgot his little gospel. Was he much unlike other folks. "You see, Evangeline," said her mother, "it's always right and proper to be kind to servants, but it isn't proper to treat them _just_ as we THE PROMISED LAND our relations, or people in our own class of life. Now, if Mammy was sick, you wouldn't want to put her in your own bed.

" THE PROMISED LAND should feel just like it, mamma," said Eva, "because then it would be handier to take care of her, and because, you know, my bed is better than hers. " Marie was in utter despair at the entire want of moral perception evinced in this reply. "What can I do to make this child understand me?" she said. THE PROMISED LAND said Miss Ophelia, significantly.

Eva looked sorry and disconcerted for a moment; but children, luckily, do not keep to one impression long, and in a few moments she was merrily laughing at various things which she saw from the coach-windows, as it rattled along.
