Confluences 1: Essays on the New Canadian Literature

edited by Nurjehan Aziz

These essays by accomplished literary critics begin an examination of some of the most exciting new writing to emerge in Canada in the last four decades, following the postcolonial wave of immigration of the 1960s and 70s. Employing a variety of approaches and bringing together multiple concerns—ranging from the aesthetics of postmodernism to a re-examination of European colonialism; from the establishment and celebration of memory to a confrontation with racism; from the acceptance of exile to the uncovering of identities—this new body of writing collectively has redefined the idea of Canadian Literature, prompting the nation to look at itself anew.
