The Song of the Lark is the third novel by American author Willa Cather, written in 1915. The title comes from a painting of the same name by Jules Adolphe Aimé Louis Breton (featured on the cover of this edition). Set in the 1890s in Moonstone, a fictional town in Colorado, the book is the self-portrait of an artist in the making. The ambitious young heroine, Thea Kronborg leaves her hometown to go to Chicago to fulfill her dream of becoming a well-trained pianist. However, when the instructor hears her voice, he realizes that this is her true artistic gift, and encourages her to pursue her vocal training instead.
