Summary "This collection of essays deals with the multiple aspects of cultural identities in literature from a postcolonial perspective. The questions raised are at the crossroads of Canadian cultural identity as they address gender, language, race, nationalism, and ethnicity, making this book a valuable reference for researchers, scholars, and students who work in the expanding fields of cultural studies, minority or gender studies, and Canadian studies."--Jacket
