Writing the Everyday: Women's Textual Communities in Atlantic Canada

Front Cover
McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, Oct 13, 2004 - Literary Criticism - 298 pages
In Writing the Everyday Danielle Fuller analyses writing by Atlantic Canadian women from diverse backgrounds. Drawing extensively on original interviews with writers, editors, and publishers, Fuller investigates how and why communities form around texts that record women's everyday realities, histories, and traditions, showing that prose writing and poetry performances combine oral story-telling, family history, and other aspects of local cultures with popular literary genres to address issues of racism, sexism, and poverty.
