Description

Dr. Lyons' study of comparative North American literatures is one of the first to compare Acadian Canadian and Native American writing. Largely unexplored, this branch of comparative literature offers much potential. Perhaps the most exciting part of this critical work is that it erases the divisions that separate the United States from Canada, in particular the linguistic and disciplinary boundaries that isolate writing in English from writing in French.
