Lecture at 7 pm : World War One and Canadian Literature
By Harry Vandervlist ( University of Calgary)
When World War One commenced in 1914, Canada was still a nation in the process of becoming, and its literature was still finding a voice. How did wartime experience shape this emerging literary voice, both during the war and in the decades to follow? What might explain the persistence of World War One as a subject for Canadian writers, a full century later? This lecture addresses these questions with reference to authors from John McCrae and Lucy Maud Montgomery, to Jane Urquhart and Joseph Boyden.
