Unpaid Annotation
Tomson Highway is one of Canada's foremost playwrights and novelists. In Comparing Mythologies he addresses a theme that is central to much of his work: the ways that Canadian culture today is shaped by the mixture of Aboriginal and Western mythologies. What interests him is not merely the differences between these cultures, but the ways that inherited beliefs enable Native communities to cope with the cultural and social challenges facing them today.
