They show an acute awareness of critical theory that is sometimes lacking in similar Canadian work. An excellent collection." – Geert Lernout, The Canadian Forum --- "The essays cover a fascinating range of topics. In her survey of CanLit studies in European universities, Nischik has made some intriguing discoveries." – William French, The Globe and Mail --- "Stimulating and original contributions. Gaining Ground signals a breakthrough in the academic acceptance of Canadian literary studies abroad." – W.J. Keith, Journal of Canadian Studies --- "Serious readers of Canadian literature have cause to be grateful to Robert Kroetsch and Reingard Nischik for focusing attention in Gaining Ground on significant studies ... currently being produced by European scholars. ... [The collection] not only offers a timely survey of the state of Canadian literary studies in about twenty European countries, but also presents evidence of the scope and maturity of scholarly interest." – Stanley S.

In this pioneering volume, European scholars of Canadian literature offer a fascinating vista on the state of Canadian Studies in Europe. The first section of the book features articles on Canadian writers and their works, such as Rudy Wiebe, Margaret Atwood, Aritha van Herk, Alice Munro, and Stephen Leacock. The second section presents a first-time survey of the organizational state of Canadian Studies in Europe, investigating programs and publications on Canadian Literature in Europe, structured by individual countries.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:issn>0-920316-79-4</bibo:issn> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-12-21T10:39:14Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:publisher>NeWest Press</dc:publisher> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:issued>1985</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Nischik, Reingard M.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Kroetsch, Robert</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Gaining ground : European critics on Canadian literature</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
