Increasingly, Canadian native literature is commanding attention. Beginning with an examination of the old tradition from which it grew, this book provides a critical analysis of Indian writing. Sermons, letters, autobiographies, diaries, petitions, historical and travel writing, speeches, and journalism are considered alongside poetry, short stories, novels, drama, myths, and essays. Timely and important, this survey explores the sensibility and imagination reflected in the various modes of literary expression.
