"The Routledge Concise History of Canadian Literature introduces the fiction, poetry and drama of Canada in its historical, political and cultural contexts. In this clear and structured volume, Richard Lane outlines: - the history of Canadian literature from colonial times to the present - key texts for Canadian First Peoples and the literature of Quebec - the impact of English translation, regional literatures, and the Canadian immigrant experience. - critical themes such as landscape, ethnicity, orality, textuality, war and nationhood - contemporary debate on the canon, feminism, postcoloniality, queer theory, and cultural and ethnic diversity - the work of canonical and lesser-known writers from Catherine Parr and Susan Moodie to Robert Service, Maria Campbell and Douglas Copeland. Written in an engaging and accessible style and offering a glossary, maps and annotated further reading sections, this guidebook is a crucial resource for students working in the field of Canadian Literature"--
