Downtown Canada

Writing Canadian Cities

Publisher: University of Toronto Press
Author: Edited by Justin D. Edwards and Douglas Ivison
Category: Literary Criticism and Collections
Collections: Books on Canada 2006
Description: The vast majority of Canadians live in cities, yet for the most part, discussions of Canadian literature have failed to actively engage with the country’s urban experience. Canada’s literature is often perceived as being about small towns, rural areas, and “roughing it in the bush.” Downtown Canada is a collection of essays that addresses Canada as an urban place. The contributors focus their attention on the writing of Canada’s cities and call attention to the centrality of the city in Canadian literature.
