Synopsis

When the first edition of "Major Canadian Authors" was published in 1984 the critics wrote: 'Stouck's book brilliantly achieves its purpose of introducing Canada's most important authors writing in English' - "Choice". 'Americans seeking to know more about the literature of our northern neighbor might well start here' - "Western Historical Quarterly". 'Stouck's discussions regularly define the essential quality of a specific work or writer and often...constitute criticism of the first order, far above the requirements of a general introduction' - "University of Toronto Quarterly".Canadian literature in English presents a wealth of imaginative experience that belies the colonial status sometimes accorded the world's second-largest country. This revised and expanded edition of "Major Canadian Authors" provides an entrance into that realm. Stouck's carefully integrated essays introduce the life and writings of eighteen foremost Canadian authors, including Robertson Davies, Margaret Laurence, Sinclair Ross, and Alice Munro. The second edition adds a new chapter on Margaret Atwood, updates the text, and expands the reference guide to include more than sixty Canadian authors.

David Stouck is a professor of English at Simon Fraser University. He is the author of "Willa Cather's Imagination" (1975), also published by the University of Nebraska Press, and "The Wardells and Vosburgshs: Records of a Loyalist Family" (1986).
