Abstract:

"Carter F. Hanson's Emigration, Notion, Vocation is a careful synthesis of a too-neglected subject, While critics have long noted the English emigrant as ubiquitous presence in early Canadian texts, apart from Susanna Moodie and Catherine Parr Traill, that presence has not been explained. Hanson has done so very well here, and he writes with precision, understanding, and imaginative grasp. This is a book for anyone interested in Canadian writing.-Robert Thacker, author of The Great Prairie Fact and Literary Imagination" "What I admire most in this study is its diligent pursuit of the "cultural dynamics" of English emigration to colonial Canada in the nineteenth century. Carefully analyzing the language and ideology of Victorian England, particularly the prevailing and compelling discourses on work, middle-class identity, and "landed vocation," Hanson provides astute readings of well-known texts by writers like Catharine Parr Traill and Susanna Moodie and of many now-overlooked books by authors such as Frederick DelaFosse, John Mackie, R.E.W. Goodridge, and Mrs. H.B. King. Bringing understanding and empathy to his readings of individual texts and the evolution of Canada over the century, he enables the reader to catch the tension between economic self-interest and a commitment to the grand imperial design that underpinned so much thinking about Canada before the twentieth century.-Michael Peterman, Professor Emeritus, Trent University"--Jacket.
