Canadian Writers on Canadian Literature – A Symposium

Canadian Writers on Canadian Literature – A Symposium is a round table published in the Toronto Globe on 1 January 1910 concerning the potential of Canadian literature to express “national life.” In it, Montgomery, whose letter leads the section on “Writers and Fiction,” was joined by several of her contemporaries, including Andrew Macphail (1864–1938), Nellie L. McClung (1873–1951), Arthur Stringer (1874–1950), Marjorie Pickthall (1833–1922), Ethelwyn Wetherald (1857–1940), and Virna Sheard (1865–1943). The round table is excerpted in The L.M. Montgomery Reader, Volume 1: A Life in Print.
