gwcover360George Woodcock: Collected editorials from Canadian Literature

Canadian Literature proudly presents our first ebook: George Woodcock: Collected editorials from Canadian Literature.

Compiled and edited by Canadian Literature’s Glenn Deer (Associate Editor) and Matthew Gruman (Marketing and Communications), this collection contains all the editorials George Woodcock wrote during his tenure as editor and Balancing the Yin and the Yang, written as a guest editorial in 1992. Also included are Alan Twigg’s In Praise of an Omnivorous Intelligence and Glenn Deer’s Alive to Unfashionable Possibilities: Reading Woodcock’s Collected Editorials—two tributes written specifically for this edition.

George Woodcock: Collected editorials from Canadian Literature is available in the EPUB format (list of supported devices).

“Canadian Literature wishes to establish no clan, little or large. It will not adopt a narrowly academic approach, nor will it try to restrict its pages to any school of criticism or any class of writers. It is published by a university, but many of its present and future contributors live and work outside academic circles, and long may they continue to do so, for the independent men and women of letters are the solid core of any mature literature. Good writing, writing that says something fresh and valuable on literature in Canada is what we seek, no matter where it originates. It can be in English or in French, and it need not necessarily be by Canadians, since we intend to publish the views of writers from south of the border or east of the Atlantic, who can observe what is being produced here from an external and detached viewpoint.”

—George Woodcock, First Issue of Canadian Literature (1959).
