Title
From Cohen to Carson: The Poet’s Novel in Canada
Abstract
The author argues that Canadian poets have turned to the novel because of the limitations of the lyric, but have used lyric methods – puns, symbolism, repetition, juxtaposition – to create a mode of narrative that contrasts sharply with the descriptive conventions of realist and plot-driven novels. Includes detailed case studies of works by Leonard Cohen and A.M. Klein.
