[is] an excellent research tool for younger students as well as more established scholars.... The breadth of the work along with the resources it provides makes it an important addition to academic libraries." – Simone Pilon, British Journal of Canadian Studies --- "This 'transatlantic' adaptation of Kanadische Literaturgeschichte is really a new volume aimed at the international market. The 11 French Canadian and English Canadian scholars' contributions are completely new; those of the 12 German scholars are either new or revised and updated. North American readers will be interested in the conjunction of European and North American perspectives." – D.R. McCarthy, Choice --- "This is a long overdue joint history of the literatures in Canada that will be extremely helpful to both students and scholars in the field....The book admirably combines ... the advantages of a compendium and a chronologically arranged literary history. In particular, the inclusion of both anglophone and francophone literatures is an asset that can hardly be stressed enough in its importance." – Katja Sarkowski, Zeitschrift für Kanada-Studien --- "Given its international origins and the diversity of its subject matter and contributors, History of Literature in Canada speaks with a remarkable unity of tone and narrative clarity. The chapters are universally competent, readable, well-researched, and informative. Many are also the most concise and incisive treatments of their subjects available to contemporary readers … numerous interesting similarities and contrasts can be gleaned from comparative readings of chapters on contemporaneous literatures in French and English." – Colin Hill, Canadian Literature} }

The volume draws on the expertise of scholars from Canada, Germany, Austria, and France, tracing literature in Canada from the indigenous oral tradition to the development of English-Canadian and French-Canadian literature through the centuries into the 21st century. Conceiving of Canada as a single but multi-faceted culture, the volume accounts for specific characteristics of English-Canadian and French-Canadian literature, such as the role of the short story in English Canada or that of the chanson in French Canada. Yet special attention is also paid to Aboriginal literature and to the ethnically diverse character of much of contemporary literature written in Canada.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:issn>978-1-57113-359-5</bibo:issn> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/38"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
