Synopsis

This volume argues that the work of these writers has been shaped by Ontario painting, which was, until the mid-1960s, the province's pre-eminent art form. The three introductory chapters situate the five writers in the context of contemporary Ontario culture, blurring the boundaries between disciplines. This is a direct contrast to the dominant critical approach, which has been to place Ontario (and other Canadian) art in a national, mythic, and disciplinary context. The volume includes chapters providing relevant background about Northrop Frye and Ontario historians, as well as Ontario visual artists. This study will also interest scholars of cultural history and interdisciplinary studies.
