About the author(s):


As the first Canadian writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, Alice Munro represents an artistic high point in the development of Canadian literature. She was born at the right time to witness the dramatic changes in Canada's cultural milieu while actively participating in the construction of Canadian culture through her creative work. This book seeks to maintain a balance between in-text and out-of-text studies based on Monroe's research findings at home and abroad, providing both a panoramic survey of the trajectory of Canadian literature and culture and an in-depth case study of the author and her works, examining Monroe's short stories in the context of Canadian national culture, thereby exploring how cultural factors enter into the systems of textual production and how fictional texts accomplish cultural construction. This is a very useful addition to the current study of Monroe.
