Wild Words: Essays on Alberta Literature
Donna Coates, George Melnyk
Athabasca University Press, 2009 - Literary Criticism - 204 pages
As the first collection of literary criticism focusing on Alberta writers, Wild Words establishes a basis for identifying Alberta fiction, poetry, drama, and nonfiction as valid subjects of study in their own right.
The idea for this collection began with 100 years of literary tradition for Alberta's centenary. However, Alberta's literary roots go back much farther than that to the oration of First Nation's peoples and the colonizing exploration and travel literature of the 18th and 19th centuries.
