Summary
"Modernity in Canada, stretching from the turn of the century to the 1950s, is a period marked by unprecedented urban and industrial growth, by urban and rural immigration from around the world, and by unique changes in power between regions, classes, races, and sexes. At the same time it is a period profoundly aware of the colonial past and its persistence, for good or ill, in the fragile economy and volatile culture of a new nation. This diverse yet distinctive Canadian modernity is explored in Unreal Country. Referring to a wide range of novels and drawing on scholarship in geography, history, and cultural studies, Glenn Willmott argues that the postcolonial rhetoric of youth coincided with - and influenced - Canadian modernism's own uncertain identity within a post-traditional, globally migrant, and interdependent society."--Jacket
