Moveable Margins

The Shifting Spaces of Canadian Literature


edited by Chelva Kanaganayakam

In these essays some of Canada’s leading literary critics examine how recent Canadian literature addresses notions of multiplicity, and how ideas of space and landscape complement and intersect with the constantly changing facets of Canadian society. The collection considers the works of a large number of diverse writers, while dealing specifically with genres such as Asian, African, and Native Canadian writing.

The contributors are respected scholars of Canadian literature at major universities.
