Goose Lane / Fiddlehead Poetry Books, Fredericton, NB, 1985, ISBN:0864920393 
GAIR, Reavley, (ed.). A Literary and Linguistic History of New Brunswick. (Fredericton, New Brunswick : "Published by Fiddlehead Poetry Books & Goose Lane Editions Ltd", 1985). First Edition. Pp (2),3-286,(2). With many b&w photos and other illustrations in the text. 8vo, illustrated beige card covers with black lettering to front cover, black lettering to white spine. William Reavley Gair (b. January 1939) was a professor of English at the University of New Brunswick. "'A Literary and Linguistic History of New Brunswick' provides an introduction to the major languages and literatures of the province. Though this volume was conceived as part of the Bicentennial celebration in 1984, the earliest materials it describes pre-date the founding of New Brunswick. Micmac and Maliseet were spoken here centuries before the first European settlers came, and story-tellers gave form to the dreams andcommon experiences of the original peoples, contributing to a tradition wh ich extends unbroken to the present day. It is with the Micmac and Maliseetlanguages, therefore, that this volume begins. But the newer traditions of eastern Canada are long-established too. Jacques Cartier's grim winter of 1535-36 at the mouth of the Ste-Croix River (in present-day Quebec) served as a prologue to the slow establishment of what became New France, while the recorded Acadian literary tradition may be traced to a masque entitled 'The Theatre of Neptune', written by Marc Lescarbot and performed on November14, 1606, 'upon the waves of Port Royal[' by actors in canoes -- the earli est known dramatic performance written in an old-world language on the edges of what was to become Canada. Acadian French remains the proud inheritance of the Acadian people, and 'A Literary and Linguistic History of New Brunswick' includes essays on the language, poetry, theatre, fiction, essay, public speech, as well as the folklore of the Acadians. Though a few English-speaking settlers had penetrated the land much earlier, it was the Loyalistinflux of 1783, after the American War of Independence, which led in the f ollowing year to the political entity known as New Brunswick. The English literary tradition, in its more formal expressions, is therefore essentiallyconfined to the period of the province's political history, and until rece ntly was much influenced by what Fred Cogswell has described as the 'classical education' of many of its writers. Not surprisingly however, the English language in use in the province shows the influence of the Scots and the Irish in addition to other less predictable ethnic strands." -from the rearcover.

GAUDET, Jeannette. Writing Otherwise : Atlan, Duras, Giraudon, Redonnet, and Wittig. Amsterdam– Atlanta, GA : Rodopi, 1999. First Edition. Chiasma 10.Pp [1]-235,(5). 8vo, illustrated blue card covers. The tenth volume in the Chiasma series. “Essentially a comparative and contrastive analysis, Writi ng Otherwise examines the prose of five French women authors: Liliane Atlan, Marguerite Duras, Liliane Giraudon, Marie Redonnet, and Monique Wittig. Through close readings of texts published after 1985, this book explores thebroad concerns and preoccupations infusing the ontological enterprise that is écriture. While maintaining a sensitivity to the diversity of styles an d themes, as well as the unique qualities of the poetic voice evident in the five texts under consideration, this study seeks to highlight, in very general terms, what is common to them. The intertextual ground that informs the works, the construction of subjectivity, and the ambivalence and tensioninherent to the practice writing constitute significant and important area s of convergence. These features form the ground of each chapter, while specific areas of divergence complete the discussion of individual aesthetics.Inspired by feminist literary theory, Writing Otherwise is also concerned with how these five women writers negotiate their relationship to writing.”- from the back cover. Very good. 30.00
