This is the second DLB volume to cover Canadian writers whose careers were established between 1960 and the early 1980s. 'Their cultural context is a society in flux,' states volume editor W. H. New, '...concerned with empirical objects as much as with desperation and abstract dreams.' Although these authors use either English or French as their primary language of artistic expression, the languages intermittently connect or give way to idiomatic, African-American, and other lyrical speech patterns, as a means of literary discovery. The group represented in this DLB volume uses language for politics and play in a dozen different ways, feeding it with imagination and making it their own. 81 entries include: Louky Bersianik,Carol Bolt,Fred Cogswell,Gary Geddes,Dave Godfrey,Jack Hodgins,Harold Horwood,Michele Lalonde,Jovette MarchessaultMichael Ondaatje,Sheila Watson.
