Northern Experience and the Myths of Canadian Culture by Renee Hulan

An in-depth examination of the ethnographic content and impact of literary representations of Canada as North.


This book is astonishing. It displays a commodious and yet incisive mind, a generous but critical aptitude, a far-ranging eclectic engagement with North that never slips into generalization or interdisciplinary evasion. In a breath-taking variety of texts from the obvious to the obscure, Hulan gathers an argument about the extent to which their authority is grounded in assumptions of gender and race ... This book will take its place as a significant voice in an ongoing debate. John Moss, author of Enduring Dreams: An Exploration of Arctic Landscape;

An important addition to previous works, analysing the concept of northern identity and how it has evolved over the years. Shelagh Grant, Department of Canadian Studies, Trent University, Traill College
