A Passion for Narrative

A Passion for Narrative

A friend responded that Canadian content would not be high on her list. I realize how much I benefited by having my university years coincide with all the Centennial hoopla--Pride. Identity. etc. But also, as a former English teacher, I really feel that the absence of knowledge about Canadian literature is a reflection of the failure of our education system. Outdated, borrowed from imperial nations UK & USA, by colonized minds who think literature is the writing of dead people from other places, a canon, rather than a living art created by real people helping other real people understand themselves and their place in the world.
