About this title


Acquiring independence from Britain in 1867, the new nation of Canada was establishing itself as a separate continental society. It was a time of westward expansion and technological change. The Canadian-Pacific railroad (1885) led the push to the prairies and the Pacific coast, and Canadian-born Alexander Graham Bell unveiled the invention (1876) that would revolutionize communications. By 1890, and for the three decades that followed, a new literary nationalism ran up against the blunt experiences of war, immigration and poverty, as well as political and social unrest. Canadian writers covered in this DLB volume include this new generation of writers which was about to turn Canadian writing in several different directions. 96 entries include: Grant Allen,Neree Beauchemin,Bliss Carman,Frank Parker Day,Albert Ferland,Martin Allerdale Grainger,Grey Owl,Andrew Macphail,E.J. Prat,Robert Service,Ernest Thompson Seton,Arthur Stringer,Joanna Ellen Wood.
