Appeared in Choice on 1995-03:
The 8th and final volume of this handsomely designed series provides meticulously annotated bibliographies of work by and criticism on three Canadian writers: Irving Layton (1912- ), Dennis Lee (1939- ), and Duncan Campbell Scott (1862-1947). Although not exhaustive, these wide-ranging bibliographies cover work and criticism in various media, including even archival manuscripts, unpublished theses, and audio-visual material. Each bibliography, which follows MLA format and has its own introduction and index to critics, is the product of rigorous scholarship and offers students of Canadian literature a detailed map for exploring the contributions of a particular author. Overall, however, the series fails to meet its ambitious objective of surveying "Canada's major French and English authors from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries." Most of the 37 prose and poetry writers examined in this series are 20th century and English-Canadian. Many important writers are omitted, including 20 who were projected in volume 1 (e.g., Hubert Aquin, Stephen Leacock, Susanna Moodie, Charles G.D. Roberts, and Raymond Souster). Thus, the series' limited selection of "major authors," although intended to meet "current bibliographical needs," does not adequately reflect the richness of the modern Canadian canon.
