War Is Here

The Vietnam War and Canadian Literature

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Robert McGill

Canada did not fight in the Vietnam War, but the conflict seized the Canadian imagination with an energy that has persisted. In War Is Here, McGill explains how the war contributed to a golden age for writing in Canada. As authors addressed the conflict, they helped to construct an enduring myth of Canada as liberal, hospitable, and humanitarian. For many writers, the war was one that Canadians could and should fight against, if not in person, then on the page. McGill observes how celebrated books of the era channel Vietnam, sometimes in subtle but pervasive ways.
