Summary
"In Setting in the East David Creelman examines the works of Maritime writers between 1920 and 2000 and traces the way Maritime fiction has been shaped by the region's history and culture. The emergence of a realist style in Maritime fiction corresponded with a dramatic period of economic and cultural disruption during which the Maritime provinces were transformed from one of Canada's most developed, prosperous, and promising regions into one characterized by chronic underemployment and underdevelopment. The Maritime region is thus torn between its memory of an earlier, more prosperous and traditional social order and its present experience as a less fortunate modern industrial society. These tensions are embedded in the Maritime character and have affected not only the lives of its people but the imaginations and texts of its writers."--Jacket
