Literary History of Canada: Canadian Literature in English. Second Edition, Volumes One, Two, and Three.
Klinck, Carl F., Ed.
These three volumes present a history of Canada in terms of writings significant in thought, form, and use of language and contribute to criticism by offering reasons for singling out those works regarded as best. The first two volumes are revisions of an earlier edition, while the third volume, devoted to the years 1960-1973, contains new material. All three volumes treat works generically classified as literature and works which have influenced literature or which have been significantly related to literature in their expression of the cultural life of Canada. Contents of the first two volumes are divided into four major parts: "new-found" lands (covering accounts in the Old World of voyages and explorations), the transplanting of traditions, the emergence of a tradition, and the realization of a tradition. Each volume has an index and sections on bibliography and notes. (JM)
