Product Description


'Canadian Hockey Literature is thoroughly researched, well written, and fast paced. When it comes to the place of hockey in Canadian writing, the breadth of Jason Blake's knowledge is astounding.' (Benoît Melançon, Département des littératures de langue française, Université de Montréal and author of The Rocket: A Cultural History of Maurice Richard)

'With a breathtaking knowledge of Canadian literature and an equally commanding knowledge of hockey, Jason Blake explores and illuminates the many ways our literary artists—from Morley Callaghan and Hugh MacLennan to Wayne Johnston and Lynn Coady—mirror, and comment on, our ceaseless fascination with Canada's national sport.' (David Staines, Department of English, University of Ottawa)

‘Canadian Hockey is a pioneering and fascinating addition to the field… There is much to admire in this book and much to think about as well. It will serve as the basis of much future research into the literary representations of national sport and deserves a wide audience inside and outside Canada.’ (Daryl Leeworthy; British Journal of Canadian Studies: vol 24:01:2011)

‘Blake has written a thoughtful and comprehensive examination of a surprisingly large and diverse body of hockey literature by dozens of Canadian  authors…The book is suitable for undergraduate and graduate student coursework in the disciplines of English, Cultural Studies and Canadian Studies. ‘ (James Onsuko)
