Cambridge Companions to Literature : The Cambridge Companion to Alice Munro Hardback
Edited by David Staines
This Companion is a thorough introduction to the writings of the Nobel Prize winner Alice Munro.
Uniting the talents of distinguished creative writers and noted academics, David Staines has put together a comprehensive, exploratory account of Munro's biography, her position as a feminist, her evocation of life in small-town Ontario, her non-fictional writings as well as her short stories, and her artistic achievement.
Considering a wide range of topics - including Munro's style, life writing, her personal development, and her use of Greek myths, Celtic ballads, Norse sagas, and popular songs - this volume will appeal to keen readers of Munro's fiction as well as students and scholars of literature and Canadian and gender studies.
