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 following dissertation proves the problematic character of the terms as they are used to situate--that is, to promote, explain, classify and evaluate--writers and writing in English Canada. The particularly rhetorical (i.e., persuasive) character of the terms and their pervasiveness in approaches to English-Canadian writing--not only in literary scholarship and criticism, but also in the publishing industry, the educational system, and so on--make region and regionalism important considerations, since the terms are used under different assumptions with varying and significant implications for the writers and regions concerned
