Canadian women writing fiction ( Book )
6 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of ten essays by American and Canadian scholars provides an engaging appraisal of Canada's contemporary women writers at work. Who is the Canadian woman writer? What themes unify the remarkable women writers who have emerged in Canada and occupy so prominent a position in the literary landscape? These questions are addressed here in criticism that defines the Canadian woman writer by her ever-pervasive quest for identity. For the general reader as well as the scholar these essays offer revealing insight into fiction by Margaret Atwood, Sandra Birdsell, Marie-Claire Blais, Beatrice Culleton, Mavis Gallant, Anne Hebert, Janette Turner Hospital, Isabel Huggan, Joy Kogawa, Alice Munro, Marlene Nourbese Philip, Carol Shields, Audrey Thomas, and Jane Urquhart and show how their works mirror the character of contemporary Canadian literature. Central to their fiction are the themes of memory, family, space, and identity. However, it is the search for identity - national, ethnic, racial, individual - that the editor finds to be the linchpin uniting them. No critic would characterize these writers as an amalgamated group, yet in seeing them together here, a reader discerns both the importance of identity for each and the nature of being a woman who has emerged as a writer in Canada

Part 1. A new study shows that while girls at age 9 and 10 say they feel confident and good about themselves--by the time they reach 15 or 16, they're less assertive and have lower self-esteem. The findings of the survey by the American Association of University Women are similar to the highly publicized work of Harvard's Carol Gilligan. Beth Engeler speaks with the AAUW's Anne Bryant. Part 2. A good deal of social history concerning women can be found in cookbooks--that's right, cookbooks. Beth Engeler visits the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and finds out more about the library's nine-thousand-book cookbook collection. Part 3. New York City writer Mickey Pearlman is disturbed by some harrassing letters a friend of hers received in an idyllic town in upstate New York. It's the subject of her essay
