Description

Profiles in Canadian Literature is a wide-ranging series of essays on Canadian authors. Each profile acquaints the reader with the writer’s work, providing insight into themes, techniques, and special characteristics, as well as a chronology of the author’s life. Finally, there is a bibliography of primary works and criticism that suggests avenues for further study.

"I know of no better introduction to these writers, and the studies in question are full of basic information not readily obtainable elsewhere." -U of T Quarterly

Editorial Reviews

"These biographies provide so many differing models of the writer's life that any dreaming young writer, male or female, can imagine a personal connection and find inspiration."

— CM Magazine

"This is not a book specifically for the common reader, though it is certainly interesting. It will be useful for teachers and students, and should be in all library reference sections."
