Most widely held works by Paul Tiessen
Joyce/Lowry : critical perspectives by Patrick A McCarthy( )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 1,396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Joyce was a central figure of high modernism; Malcolm Lowry spoke for the next generation of modernist writers and, despite his denials, was almost certainly influenced by Joyce. Wherever the truth lies, there are correspondences and differences to be explored between Joyce and Lowry that are far more interesting than the question of direct influence
Under the volcano by Malcolm Lowry( )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Malcolm Lowry 1940 Under the Volcano has been regarded too often as little more than Lowry's blueprint - though a tentative one at best - for his 1947 masterwork, Under the Volcano. It has never been adequately considered in terms of Lowry's work that preceded it, or been fully critically edited on its own terms

Swinging the maelstrom by Malcolm Lowry( )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Swinging the Maelstrom is the story of a musician enduring existence in the Bellevue psychiatric hospital in New York. Written during his happiest and most fruitful years, this novella reveals the deep healing influence that the idyllic retreat at Dollarton had on Lowry. This long-overdue scholarly edition will allow scholars to engage in a genetic study of the text and reconstruct, step by step, the creative process that developed from a rather pessimistic and misanthropic vision of the world as a madhouse (The Last Address, 1936), via the apocalyptic metaphors of a world on the brink of Armageddon (The Last Address, 1939), to a world that, in spite of all its troubles, leaves room for self-irony and humanistic concern (Swinging the Maelstrom,1942- 944)

A darkness that murmured : essays on Malcolm Lowry and the twentieth century( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the publication of Under the Volcano, Lowry became a cult hero in literary circles on both sides of the Atlantic. This collection explores the life of the man - including memoirs by people Lowry knew at important stages of his life - and offers critical insight into his writings. The writing discussed includes his novels and poetry, as well as three letters written when he was a schoolboy and undergraduate, and two that he wrote in the last months of his troubled life."--Jacket
Apparently incongruous parts : the worlds of Malcolm Lowry( Book )

After Green Gables : L.M. Montgomery's letters to Ephraim Weber, 1916-1941 by L. M Montgomery( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ephraim Weber (1870-1956) was a struggling young writer when he began corresponding with L.M. Montgomery (1874-1942) in 1902, six years before she published her first novel. Weber's initial letter was that of an admirer. Montgomery responded warmly, and the two quickly began a correspondence that became an intellectual mainstay for both of them over the following forty years. After Green Gables is a collection of letters sent by Montgomery to Weber between 1916 and 1941. This was the period of Montgomery's greatest literary success, but privately she was deeply troubled by her unhappy marriage." "The letters, revealing an intense social and intellectual dynamic between Montgomery and Weber, cover, among other subjects, their strong differences of opinion on matters such as pacifism and war and their joint rejection of the effects of literary modernism. Drawing on Weber's voluminous correspondence with other Canadian figures - particularly journalist Wilfred Eggleston - editors Paul Tiessen and Hildi Froese Tiessen skilfully illuminate Weber's interaction with Montgomery, especially in matters concerning literature and culture, religion and politics, and education and entertainment. The editors provide various readings of Weber, based on his aspirations as a writer, his active participation in the Canadian culture of his day (including his friendships with hometown schoolmate William Lyon Mackenzie King and community leader Leslie Staebler), and his heritage as a Mennonite." "Montgomery's letters to a man committed to writing and to the cultural development of Canada reveal her intellectual preoccupations and her personal hardships."--BOOK JACKET
