Echoing Silence: Essays on Arctic Narrative
John George Moss
University of Ottawa Press, 1997 - Literary Criticism - 232 pages
The North has always had, and still has, an irresistible attraction. This fascination is made up of a mixture of perspectives, among these, the various explorations of the Arctic itself and the Inuk cultural heritage found in the elders' and contemporary stories. This book discusses the different generations of explorers and writers and illustrates how the sounds of a landscape are inseparable from the stories of its inhabitants.
