Checklist of Printed Material Relating to French-Canadian Literature by Gerard Tougas

This second enlarged edition of Gerard Tougas' Checklist is essentially a primary bibliography of French-Canadian literature from the nineteenth century to 1968. The Checklist, containing over 2800 titles, represents the holdings of the University of British Columbia Library. The UBC collection comprises a substantial portion of the total body of work published in this field. Included are books, pamphlets and microfilms. In this bibliography, the term literature has been interpreted to include separately published chronicles, literary criticism, biographies, and folklore as well as novels, poetry, drama and short stories. The second edition has been expanded to include bibliographies and theses.

About the Author

Gerard Tougas, Professor of French Language and Literature at the University of British Columbia, specializes in the study of francophone literatures. The first edition of A Checklist of Printed Materials relating to French-Canadian Literature dates from 1958. In 1960 his Histoire de la litterature canadienne-francaise contemporaine appeared, and the fifth edition will be published at the end of 1973. His other works include: Litterature romande et culture francais which analyzes the novelists and poets of French Switzerland; La Francophonie en peril, a comparative study of French and English-speaking African authors, and Litterature canadienne-francaise contemporaine. In his latest work, Les ecrivans d'expression francaise devant la France, Professor Tougas has made a study of the francophone authors of Africa, the Middle East, Madagascar, Mauritius and Reunion, Indochina, the Antilles, and Canada which underlines the dynamism of contemporary French literatures.
