Divisions on A Ground
Essays on Canadian CultureBook - 1982
Perhaps the most influential critical thinker of our time, Northrop Frye has long commented upon the cultural life of his own country. The Bush Garden is now a standard work on Canadian writing and painting, and Divisions on a Ground continues Frye's extraordinary enquiry into Canada's literature, universities, social assumptions, and national character.
In 13 essays and addresses, Fry covers a broad range of subject matter, from future shock to the meaning of Canada's history; from student politics to the idea of the university; from regional verse to Marshall McLuhan and the age of television.Provocative, splendidly written and quite entertaining, Divisions on a Ground shows Northrop Frye at his most accessible: a book of prime importance for every North American.
