Quote #10

[Cuzak] advanced to meet me and gave me a hard hand, burned red on the back and heavily coated with hair. He wore his Sunday clothes, very thick and hot for the weather, an unstarched white shirt, and a blue necktie with big white dots, like a little boy's, tied in a flowing bow. (5.2.8)

It's interesting that Ántonia ends up marrying a city man – Cuzak is definitely more enamored of city life than farm life. How does this comment on the social system we saw established when Jim and Ántonia first moved to town?
