The Second Edition of The Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature, now in its third printing, is a landmark reference work. Reducing its 1200 pages by almost one half this concise edition will make the core contents of the original volume accessible to a much wider range of readers. Someentries have been shortened and others have been dropped, including many genre and regional surveys (except for Aboriginal literature, Exploration literature, and Writing in New France) and articles on Quebecois and Acadian writers whose works have not been translated into English. The remainingentries, however, have all been updated to include new publications, and those on leading writers have in many cases been expanded. Finally, over sixty new entries have been added - including entries on Gail Anderson-Dargatz, Anne Cameron, Wayson Choy, The Colony of Unrequited Dreams, TravorFerguson, Cecil Foster, D.M. Fraser, The Giller Prize, Elizabeth Hay, David Macfarlane, Peter Oliva, Kenneth Opel, Witold Rybczynski, Shyam Selvadurai, Russell Smith, and Margaret Visser - making this concise edition an indispensable supplement to the original companion. original companion.
