How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

I tried to shut Ántonia out of my mind. I was bitterly disappointed in her. I could not forgive her for becoming an object of pity. (4.1.5)

Again, it sounds like Ántonia is a sister or a daughter to Jim, not an object of romantic or sexual affection. The nature of his feelings for her is cryptic indeed.
