Writing Beyond the End Times? / Écrire au-delà de la fin des temps ?

The Literatures of Canada and Quebec / Les littératures au Canada et au Québec

This collection of essays examines how the sense of crisis that occasionally seems to overwhelm us directs and transforms Canadian and Quebec writings in English and French, and conversely, how literature and criticism set out to counterbalance the social, economic, and ideological insecurities we live in.

Ce recueil de textes étudie les manières dont le sentiment de crise qui peut parfois sembler nous submerger, oriente et transforme les écrits canadiens et québécois d'expressions anglaise et française, et inversement, comment la littérature et la critique s'efforcent de contrebalancer les insécurités sociales, économiques et idéologiques dans lesquelles nous vivons.

Reviews

"What kinds of narratives are generated by times of crisis? As this volume shows, there are many stories... [Writing Beyond the End Times] succeeds in its intention for readers to engage with these urgent issues, stimulating dialogue across cultures and languages in a quest for alternative visions of possible futures."—Coral Ann Howells, British Journal of Canadian Studies, Autumn 2021

"Challenging as it can be seen on occasion, Writing Beyond the End Times? offers enthusiasts of Canadian Literature a means of rediscovering familiar authors and discovering new ones." Eric Saplding, Pacific Rims Review of Books, Vol. 14, No 1.
