Summary
"This is the first study of the quest for self and Canadian identity in the fiction and poetry of Michael Ondaatje. Reading selected texts by Ondaatje, including the novels In the Skin of a Lion and The English Patient and the poem "Birch Bark," Annick Hillger demonstrates how Ondaatje's writing both answers and challenges attempts to delineate the idea of a Canadian national self. She sets his work within the context of theoretical and philosophical ideas, developing the notion of a "literature of silence" that is concerned with finding a ground for self beyond the realm of language."--Jacket
