These essays (in English except for four items in German and
French) provide an intercultural perspective. They deal with such diverse
aspects of North American (including Québécois) literature as „Kanadas
Verhältnis zu den USA im Spiegel seiner Literatur,“ „Canada and American
Slavery“, the Acadian theme in „Longfellow et Antonine Maillet“ and
„The Western Love Code: Faulkner, Hébert, Hemingway, and Ondaatje.“ The
continental context also pervades treatments of novels (featuring Indian
wars, sentimentalism, the West, and modern pícaros), story cycles (e.g.,
Atwood’s), and the long poem (Kroetsch).
