Reading Canadian Reading meticulously rereads Davey's and others' criticism of Canadian writing and teases out contentious assumptions that shape notions of Canadian culture, literature, and writing. Sixteen exemplary readings articulate the economic and ideological forces structuring the writing, publishing, distribution, and reading of Canadian text, and unheard voices and stories in the work of Margaret Atwood, Earle Birney, Dennis Cooley, Jack Hodgins, Eli Mandel, and Audrey Thomas.
