Summary
"The Buried Astrolabe shows that Canadian plays are increasingly being recognized as some of the most important on the international scene. Craig Walker devotes the main body of his critical introduction to readings of James Reaney, Michael Cook, Sharon Pollock, Michel Tremblay, George F. Walker, and Judith Thompson. His interpretations shed light on poetics, mythological underpinnings, and the cultural significance of characteristic tropes."--Jacket
