Title
Periodicals in Early Nineteenth-Century Lower Canada: A Study of Samuel Hull Wilcocke's the Scribbler in the Field of Cultural Production
Abstract
A case study of Samuel Hull Wilcocke's (c. 1766-1833)Montreal periodical the Scribbler, which appeared from 1821 to 1827, to examine the field of cultural production in Lower Canada. The author examines the influence that the government and the city's merchant class had over print publication in this early period, the existence of British Romantic aesthetics in the periodicals of early Canada, and the ways in which a periodical can propose and perform an understandings of community and nationhood. The Scribbler was a magazine of humour, gossip and light literature that poked fun at Montreal's English-speaking merchant class.
