From the Back Cover

This book differs from other anthologies of Canadian literature in its inclusion of substantial contextual material; its historical emphasis on the production of Canadian literature; its interdisciplinary approach; its emphasis on intertextual dialogue between selections; its inclusion of popular culture texts, such as song lyrics; and its inclusion of a substantial representation of Canadian First Nations writing within a general Canadian Literature anthology.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Canadian mystery reader on May 9 2009
Format: Paperback
These anthologies were created as teaching texts for college and university-level Canadian Literature courses, however, they would be of considerable benefit at the secondary level for student independent studies in the academic stream in Canadian Literature, History, Art, or Aboriginal Studies. The two volumes are particularly useful because they combine literary narratives with historical documents that help to illuminate each historical period. As literary histories of Canada, the books help place the development of culture of Canada in social, political, and historical contexts.

Written and compiled within a postcolonial framework, the two volumes are sensitive to the early Aboriginal heritage of the continent and to the growing sense of cultural and ethnic pluralism evident as early as the beginning of the nineteenth century. The selections in the anthologies also show an awareness of the Eurocentrism and paternalism of the explorers, settlers, and nation builders. Further, there is an emphasis on the environment and resources that will be of interest to contemporary students. Extensive introductory essays and detailed headnotes for each of the selections provide students with background material to guide them as independent readers. Bibliographies provide primary and secondary resources and accompany each section of the book.

The first volume covers literary texts from the 'First Words' of Indigenous storytellers, to narratives of European encounter with First Nations and narratives of exploration. It also contains the emigration guides of Black Loyalists and settlers, as well as the fiction and journalism of Stephen Leacock, Nellie McClung, and L. M. Montgomery in the 1910s.
