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

Front Cover
McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, Oct 13, 2004 - Literary Criticism - 312 pages
Prose works examined include Bernice Morgan's best-selling novel Random Passage, short stories by Helen Porter and Governor General's award-winner Joan Clark, as well as poetry by Mi'kmaq Elder Rita Joe and "People's Poet" Maxine Tynes, and the adult work of well-known children's author Sheree Fitch. Fuller demonstrates how these writers overturn regional stereotypes to present a complex and intriguing portrait of women's lives in Canada's most eastern provinces.
