From the Back Cover:

The Canadian Novel in the Twentieth Century is a book of dual significance. Not only does it represent a substantial cross-section of the most astute and articulate voices in Canadian literary criticism, but it also provides a strikingly broad and compact assessment of Canadian fiction from Stead and Grove to Richler, Moore and Atwood. All but one of the essays have been assembled from the fifteen years of Canadian Literature, the most vital and authoritative journal of literary criticism in Canada.

Compiled by George Woodcock, founder of Canadian Literature and the one man in Canadian letters who has distinguished himself above all others in fostering a national literary criticism, this anthology spans the century, presenting articles by twenty-six writers, including W. H. New, D. A. Cameron, D. O. Spettigue, Peter Stevens, and Warren Tallman. Novelists Margaret Laurence, Mordecai Richler, Jack Ludwig and Ethel Wilson are also represented through their critical writing.

The Canadian Novel in the Twentieth Century is assured of a lasting and significant place in the expanding volume of Canadian literary criticism.
