Progressive heritage : the evolution of a politically radical literary tradition in Canada by James Doyle( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 227 libraries worldwide
Most critics and literary historians have ignored Marxist-inspired creative literature in Canada, or dismissed it as an ephemeral phenomenon of the 1930s. Research reveals, however, that from the 1920s onward Canadian creative writers influenced by Marxist ideas have produced a quantitatively substantial and artistically significant body of poetry, drama, fiction and non-fiction. This book traces historically and evaluates critically this tradition, with particular emphasis on writers who were associated with, or sympathetic to, the Communist Party of Canada. After two chapters surveying the work of anti-capitalist writers of the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, the book concentrates on the development of Marxist-inspired writing from the 1920s to the end of the twentieth century. Besides devoting attention to both social and theoretical backgrounds, this study provides critical commentary on work by prominent writers who spent part of their literary careers as Communist Party members, including Dorothy Livesay, Patrick Dyson Carter, Joe Wallace, Stanley Ryerson, and Jean-Jules Richard.; Although primarily concerned with the older generation of Marxists who flourished between the 1920s and the 1970s, the book also includes a chapter on the post-1970s 'New Left

Annie Howells and Achille Fréchette by James Doyle( Book )
5 editions published between 1979 and 2017 in English and held by 185 libraries worldwide
Post-Confederation Ottawa sets the scene for this fascinating biography of a literary couple. The marriage of Annie Howells and Achille Fréchette in 1877 brought together two literary families and two cultural traditions. Annie was the daughter of the US consul in Quebec, William Cooper Howells, and sister of the American novelist William Dean Howells. Achille, a translator for the Canadian House of Commons, was the brother of the French-Canadian poet Louis Fréchette. Both Annie and Achille were authors themselves, and their lives and careers touched frequently Ottawa's political, cultural, and religious life. In Ottawa the Fréchettes established themselves at the centre of a distinguished bilingual circle of politicians, poets, and scholars. Their friends included Wilfrid Laurier, Alphonse Lusignan, and, in later years, Archibald Lampman. Both Fréchettes continued to pursue the literary careers they had begun before their marriage. Annie published a serialized novel and many short stories and articles; Achille's poems continued to appear in various periodicals. Achille also took part as writer and trustee in a bitter debate over separate schools. The many surviving letters between Annie and her brother William cover various topics of mutual interest to Canadians and Americans, reflecting both Canadian and American cultural experience in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries

Stephen Leacock : the sage of Orillia by James Doyle( Book )
11 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and held by 154 libraries worldwide
Stephen Leacock, Canada's foremost literary humorist, enjoyed a huge popular success in his time, and a number of his comic works, especially Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town, still have the power to delight today's readers. But Leacock accomplished much more. He was also a professor of political science and economics; he produced 61 works in several fields; he wrote more than 90 scholarly articles. James Doyle explores both the private and public lives of this prominent and prolific writer. Highlights of this illustrated biography include Leacock's hardworking life as a child growing up on a farm in a "lost corner of Ontario"; the university years which resulted in a PhD in economics and political science from the University of Chicago; the motivations behind Leacock's dual commitment to social commentary and comic writing; and his conservatism - his ardent belief in the British empire - and how it affected his increasingly active career on the international lecture circuit
The fin de siècle spirit : Walter Blackburn Harte and the American-Canadian literary milieu of the 1890s by James Doyle( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
The Fin de Siecle Spirit uses the biography of an unjustly forgotten writer to recreate some of the intersecting and contrasting features of the Canadian and American literary milieux in the 1890s. Born in England in 1868, Walter Blackburn Harte immigrated to Canada in 1886, where he established himself as a journalist and writer of short stories and magazine articles. In 1890 he moved to the United States, to serve as assistant editor of the New England and Arena magazines, and subsequently as editor or contributor with a series of experimental little magazines. Harte's innovative essays and fiction achieved an underground reputation among the iconoclastic Canadian and American writers of the period. His life and writings shed light on the experience of a generation of Canadian and American writers who faced the social and cultural crises of the end of a century
