Hailed as a landmark in Canadian literary scholarship when it was originally published in 1965, the Literary History of Canada is now being reissued, revised and enlarged, in three volumes. This major effort of a large group of scholars working in the field of English-language Canadian literature provides a comprehensive, up-to-date reference work. It has already proven itself invaluable as a source of information on authors, genres, and literary trends and influences. It represents a positive attempt to give a history of Canada in terms of writings which deserve attention because of significant thought, form, and use of language. Volume 3 has been newly written for this edition of the History, and covers the years from about 1960 to 1974

Tecumseh: fact and fiction in early records; a book of primary source materials by Carl F Klinck( Book )

12 editions published between 1961 and 1978 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The colorful story of the famous chief Tecumseh (1768-1813) is presented through this generous selection of the earliest records. These letters, descriptions, and narratives by statesmen and men close to the Shawnee warrior must be the basis for any assessment of his role in the struggle of the Indian nation to maintain itself against the settlers. Since the Indians wrote nothing and white men gave conflicting reports about Tecumseh"s life and death, the legends and historical accounts leave much scope for fresh inquiry

"In 1832, Susanna Moodie, her husband, and her daughter immigrated to Canada from England in search of financial independence. In Roughing It in the Bush, Moodie recounts the seven and a half years the family spent pioneering in the unsettled Canadian backwoods. The text reprinted in this Norton Critical Edition is the second English edition, of July 1852, chosen because it corrects errors in the first edition and adds selected material by Moodie that was not included in the first edition."--Jacket

Giving Canada a literary history : a memoir by Carl F Klinck( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Giving Canada a Literary History, Carl Klinck combines his autobiography with a history of the development of Canadian Literature as a serious field of study. When he set out to find out the "facts," he did so because he was convinced that "Our national soul is hidden within us, in what we are, in our expression of ourselves, in our literature." Indeed, the present strong state of the discipline is largely the result of Carl Klinck's efforts to establish a canon and to provide the basic tools of study through his own publications and through collaborative efforts with other scholars. He believed that the work he had undertaken was a "patriotic duty," and his role in the creation of student texts, editions of classic works, and especially, The Literary History of Canada made him the principal architect of the systematic scholarship that has emerged in Canada since the early 1960s
