The Oxford companion to Canadian literatureUser Review - Book Verdict
"Aboriginal literature," "Marie-Claire Blais," "Humour and satire," "Mystery or crime," "McGill-Queen's University Press," "Jane Rule," "Southern Ontario Gothic," and "Ukrainian-Canadian Literature" are just some of the more than 1100 entries that the second edition of this Oxford companion comprises. The text focuses on three main aspects of Canadian literature--English-Canadian, Quebe ois, and Acadian--and gives a fine balance to francophone literature and writers. Like many such literary companions, references in entries to other entries appear in all-caps. There are 342 more entries than appeared in the first edition (LJ 5/1/84), and the original 193 contributors have expanded to 325 in this volume. Nearly all the original entries have been modified or updated. One problem with this type of format for nonbiographical entries is in knowing what is here. For instance, since there is no index, save for reading the preface one would not know that there are entries on "Censorship," "Fantastic Literature and Science Fiction in French," "Multicultural Writing in French," "Southeast Asian-Canadian Literature," or "Southern Ontario Gothic." A list of nonbiographical entries would have been useful. Nevertheless, this work is recommended as a useful source for academic and public libraries.--Lee Arnold, Historical Soc. of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia

This is a good reference book for those of us who still prefer the hard copy where "fact"s can"t be added by just anybody who is online...oops like me? I haven't actually read from beginning to finish...
