Essays on the Canadian Long PoemeBook - 1998
"A growing number of literary historians and critics now recognize the long poem as a distinctively Canadian genre. This has been particularly evidenced through the recurrence of documentary aspects addressing both topographical and memorial functions. Together these features serve as indicators that lead the reader to a deeper understanding of Canadian literary cultures both in terms of their local intimacies and idiosyncrasies as well as in their national contexts."--Jacket.
