Profiles in Canadian Literature is a wide-ranging series of essays on Canadian authors. Each profile acquaints the reader with the writer's work, providing insight into themes, techniques, and special characteristics, as well as a chronology of the author's life. Finally, there is a bibliography of primary works and criticism that suggests avenues for further study.

I know of no better introduction to these writers, and the studies in question are full of basic information not readily obtainable elsewhere. -U of T Quarterly
