This historic collection, the first of its kind, is devoted to the discussion of Italian-Canadian writers publishing in English, in French or in Italian. These critical essays include analyses of some important writing: F.G. Paci's Black Madonna, the poetry of Mary di Michele and Pier Giorgio Di Cicco, the plays of Marco Micone, the novels of Maria Ardizzi, and many others. The ten contributors make significant additions to the study of Canadian Literature.
There is an implicit rejection of the nationalistic reading of Canadian writing by the authors represented here. The essays point to a deeper truth in the art of [humanity]: it is not in the grand scale but in the little things that we find commonality.
