"This up-to-date reference book brings together three hundred leading Canadianists to look at literature in Canada from a variety of perspectives. In over two thousand entries that attest to Canada's cultural plurality, the Encyclopedia covers literature in English and French, and also in such other languages as Yiddish, Spanish, Haida, and Cree. It discusses authors and their work, related literary and social issues, professional institutions that play a role in the lives of Canadian writers, and the major historical and cultural events that have shaped Canada." "Among these are commentaries on humour and satire, genre (including radio drama and the long poem), social history, film, television and popular culture, literary awards, language, critical theory, the oral literatures of the First Nations, petroglyphs, the publishing industry, journalism, gender race, religion, region, myth, and class." "Extensive cross-referencing, a cultural chronology, supplementary index, and index of authors, as well as suggestions for further reading make this encyclopedia the most complete and accessible reference guide to Canadian literature in print."--Jacket

Borderlands : how we talk about Canada by W. H New( Book )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Borderlands traces some of the ways in which border metaphors pervade Canadian consciousness. Addressing a variety of social issues - among them, separatism, marginalization, multiculturalism, colonial attitudes, national policies, language, and the influence of the United States - W.H. New shows how the border, though spatial in character, is political in intent and effect. Comprising three essays, Borderlands moves from a general survey of the metaphor of the border, to a close examination of the significance of the US border in Canadian cultural history, finishing with a detailed comparison of two literary texts from the Pacific Northwest, each of which is shaped by the border concerns of the culture it represents."--Jacket

Reading Mansfield and metaphors of form by W. H New( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking an innovative approach to criticism, Reading Mansfield and Metaphors of Form demonstrates how Mansfield's stylistic practice both embodies and conveys her analysis of social and psychological trauma through a "metaphoric" use of literary form. New argues that the stories are neither simple vehicles for conveying emotional states nor neutral representations of moments in time but carefully crafted models, or correlatives, of social and psychological conditions of understanding. He elucidates a number of formal strategies, such as sequence, reversal, negation, repetition, deferral, and reconstruction, and then applies them to a wide range of Mansfield's stories, including such favorites as "Prelude," "The Voyage," "The Little Governess," and "Je ne parle pas francais.""--Jacket
Tropes and territories : short fiction, postcolonial readings, Canadian writing in context by Marta Dvorak( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Postcolonial and Commonwealth literary scholarship has tended to emphasize the novel. Tropes and Territories is the first book to focus on modern short fiction, including Metis narratives, Maori myth, and stories by Mansfield, Frame, Munro, Rushdie, MacLeod, Gallant, Narayan, Jarman, and King. While Canadian writers and writings are central, contributors also consider South Pacific, South Asian, and Caribbean stories." "Tropes and Territories demonstrates how current debates in postcolonial criticism bear on the reading, writing, and status of short fiction. These debates, which hinge on competing definitions of "trope" (motif vs rhetorical turn) and "territory" (political or aesthetic), lead to studies of space, place, influence, and writing and reading practices across cultural divides. The essays also explore the character of diasporic writing, the cultural significance of oral taletelling, and interconnections between socio/political issues and strategies of style."--Jacket
