Title
Writing in the Time of Nationalism: From Two Solitudes to Blue Metropolis
Abstract
Montreal was the literary centre of Canada in the 1940s, a hotbed of literary activity in both English and French. With the rise of nationalism in both English Canada and Quebec, Toronto emerged as the literary centre of English Canada with Montreal the literary centre of French Quebec. English Montreal went into decline and its once great literary tradition was marginalized. The author gives an insider's view of the English language writers who have been caught between the rival nationalisms. She tells the story of a community that went missing from the literary map of Canada for a generation, and that has reemerged since the turn of the century in a renaissance that has garnered international attention.
