Product Description


“This collection, meticulously selected, edited, and introduced by Marta Dvořák, performs an invaluable service for readers who have known Buckler best as the author of The Mountain and the Valley. In fact, Buckler’s stories and shorter pieces — stylistically, as psychological studies, and in their artfully shaped forms — anticipate not only his best-known novel, but also, as Dvořák shows, the short fiction of other, better-known contemporary Canadian writers. This edition is a signal contribution to our understanding of Buckler’s real place in Canadian writing.” (Neil Besner, University of Winnipeg)

About the Author

Ernest Buckler (1908-1984) was born in West Dalhousie, Nova Scotia. He spent most of his life writing and farming in the Annapolis Valley, and died in Bridgetown, Nova Scotia.

Marta Dvoák is professor of Canadian and postcolonial literatures in English at the Sorbonne Nouvelle, former associate editor of The International Journal of Canadian Studies, and editor of Commonwealth Essays and Studies. Focusing her research on (post)modernism and cross-culturalism, she has authored and edited books ranging from Ernest Buckler: Rediscovery and Reassessment (WLU Press, 2001) to Tropes and Territories: Short Fiction, Postcolonial Readings, and Canadian Writings in Context (co-ed. W.H. New) and The Faces of Carnival in Anita DesaiÂ’s In Custody.
