About this product
- DescriptionNative Writers and Canadian Writing is a co-publication with Canadian Literature -- Canada's foremost literary journal -- of a special double issue which focuses on literature by and about Canada's Native peoples and contains original articles and poems by both Native and n-Native writers. These t only reflect the growing prominence of contemporary Native writing but also direct the reader to the traditional literature from which it springs and which has been largely misunderstood by the n- Native community -- myths, rituals, and songs having been interpreted more often as artistic curiosities rather than the masterworks of a different culture. Essays examining the conventional portrayals of Native people in literature touch on works which range from the eighteenth-century journals of explorer Alexander Mackenzie, to the vels of James Fenimore Cooper, and to early writers in Canada such as historian-humourist Thomas Chandler Haliburton.
