Speculative fictions : contemporary Canadian novelists and the writing of history by Herb Wyile( Book )
14 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 297 libraries worldwide
"Herb Wyile provides a comparative analysis of the historical concerns and textual strategies of twenty novels published since the appearance of Rudy Wiebe's groundbreaking The Temptations of Big Bear in 1973. Drawing on the work of theorists and critics such as Mikhail Bakhtin, Fredric Jameson, and Linda Hutcheon, Speculative Fictions examines the nature of these novels' engagement with Canadian history, historiography, and the writing of historical fiction. Wyile concludes that the writing of history in English-Canadian fiction over the last thirty years makes a substantial contribution to a revisioning of history and to a postcolonial renegotiation of Canadian society"--Jacket

The ultimate purpose of the meta-critical investigation undertaken in the dissertation is to illustrate how region and regionalism are frequently negative, largely unexamined, and thoroughly problematic terms in English-Canadian literary criticism and scholarship, and to relate these problems to larger assumptions about writing and about political, cultural, social and economic relationships in Canada. The study argues for increased critical awareness in the use of the terms, pointing out the merits and potential of writing which the terms have often been used to contain or dismiss, and outlines directions in this writing and critical approaches to region and writing which address the very problems that relating region to writing usually entails. By recognizing the implications of the ways in which writers, writing, regions and regionalism are characterized in English-Canadian literary criticism and scholarship, the dissertation seeks to address the conditions and attitudes which produce and sustain political, cultural and economic imbalances in Canada and to reassert, in the face of increasing homogeneity and standardization, the importance of cultural plurality
