Book Description :

From Aboriginal writing to Margaret Atwood, this is a complete English-language history of Canadian writing in English and French from its beginnings. The multi-authored volume pays special attention to works from the 1960s and after, to multicultural and Indigenous writing, popular literature, and the interaction of anglophone and francophone cultures throughout Canadian history. Established genres such as fiction, drama and poetry are discussed alongside forms of writing which have traditionally received less attention, such as the essay, nature-writing, life-writing, journalism, and comics, and also writing in which the conventional separation between genres has broken down, such as the poetic novel. Written by an international team of distinguished scholars, the volume includes a separate, substantial section discussing major genres in French, as well as a detailed chronology of historical and literary/cultural events, and an extensive bibliography covering criticism in English and French.

Book Description :

This fully revised second edition of The Cambridge Companion to Canadian Literature offers a comprehensive introduction to major writers, genres and topics. For this edition several chapters have been completely rewritten to reflect major developments in Canadian literature since 2004. Surveys of fiction, drama and poetry are complemented by chapters on Aboriginal writing, autobiography, literary criticism, writing by women and the emergence of urban writing. Areas of research that have expanded since the first edition include environmental concerns and questions of sexuality which are freshly explored across several different chapters. A substantial chapter on francophone writing is included. Authors such as Margaret Atwood, noted for her experiments in multiple literary genres, are given full consideration, as is the work of authors who have achieved major recognition, such as Alice Munro, recipient of the Nobel Prize for literature.

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

This book encompasses a historically based literary analysis through an ecocritical perspective, in a thematic examination of how backwoodsmen from the seventeenth-century through the nineteenth-century are portrayed in four works of French Canadian literature. Literary depictions of these men of European origin reveal the dominant culture’s changing attitudes toward Amerindians and land use, exposing each period’s problematic behavior vis-à-vis different cultures and the environment and the intercultural connections and business relationships that point to the way forward.

Book Description :

Margaret Conrad's history of Canada begins with a challenge to its readers. What is Canada? What makes up this diverse, complex and often contested nation-state? What was its founding moment? And who are its people? Drawing on her many years of experience as a scholar, writer and teacher of Canadian history, Conrad offers astute answers to these difficult questions. Beginning in Canada's deep past with the arrival of its Aboriginal peoples, she traces its history through the conquest by Europeans, the American Revolutionary War and the industrialization of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to its prosperous present. Despite its successes and its popularity as a destination for immigrants from across the world, Canada remains a curiously reluctant player on the international stage. This intelligent, concise and lucid book explains just why that is.

Book Description :

To anyone who has crossed the Canadian prairies, the title of this book, Vertical Man/Horizontal World, will strike a responsive chord -- man stands alone in seemingly limitless landscape "as empty as nightmare". The stark isolation of man against the prairie's landscape is "so obvious" the author says, "that except for passing comments [in two studies of Canadian prairie fiction] no one has made a sustained analysis of the use of the prairie in Canadian fiction, or argued at any length for what most immediately unifies the literature of the prairie region." Author Ricou argues that man is intimidated by the vastness which so surrounds him, and "he will almost certainly wish to meet the challenge of this land, to say 'Look, look!' in whatever way he can, by raising a crop or a monument, by interpreting his experience in paint or words." Ricou traces this recurrent theme in prairie fiction from writers such as Frederick Philip Grove and Wallce Stegner, Edward McCourt and W.O. Mitchell, to Margaret Laurence and Robert Kroetsch. In tracing the relationship of man and land from the earliest writers of prairie fiction to the most recent, Ricou shows how the calm and benign relationship of man and land as exemplified, for instance, in the fiction of Robert Stead and W.O. Mitchell has changed in recent novels to a more dramatic confrontation. "[The novelists] find in [the landscape] an ideal mirror for the dilemma (and often the strength) of existential man." Critic Henry Keisel once wrote: "To conquer a piece of the continent, to put one's imprint upon virgin land, to say 'Here I am, for that I came", is as much a way of proving one's existence, as is Descartes' "cogito, ergo sum." Vertical Man/Horizontal World is an affirmation of Kreisel's statement. Slowly and cumulatively Ricou traces the image of man leaving his mark on the empty, sometimes nightmarish land of the Canadian prairie. "How do we fit our time and our place?" is a question posed by all the writers Ricou examines. "The answer," he says, "at this point in the evolution of Canadian prairie fiction, delivered with conviction . . . is: abruptly and uneasily, but brazenly and delightedly." This book is a sustained and penetrating look at the interrelationship of man and landscape in Canadian prairie fiction.
