Book Description
In Literature and Identity - Essays on Newfoundland and Labrador by Ronald Rompkey Rompkey claims that the uniqueness of Newfoundland and Labrador as a place has become more evident in the struggles of the last two generations of writers to find a voice that will reveal it as an "imagined community" breaking free from its colonial roots. In the process, his own distinctive voice rings clear and compelling th roughout his commentaries on a whole range of disparate writings that attract his attention. Starting with the engrossing evaluation of Erle Spencer's life and work, the reader will quickly find his judgement to be so sound that he can expect to be so sound that he can expect to be splendidly entertained and enlightened throughout the rest of the book. As a consequence Literature and Identity is an important collection for all those readers who wish to understand themselves and their place in the developing ethos of this province.

Ronald Rompkey is University Research Professor in the Department of English at Memorial University.

Everard King is Professor of English at Memorial University. From 1968 to 2001 he was Poetry Editor ofThe Newfoundland Quarterly
