Odysseus Ever Returning was not included in Series One.
From the Back Cover:
This brilliant collection of critical essays which, in the author’s words, “…presents a mirror to the changing patterns of Canadian literature,” should arouse great academic and popular interest. Included are new essays on Leonard Cohen and Brian Moore – all the other articles have appeared in various Canadian literary journals. These are critical looks at the works of Hugh MacLennan, Morley Callaghan, Wyndham Lewis, Malcolm Lowry, Irving Layton, A.J.M. Smith, and Earle Birney. Woodcock offers comment on Edmund Wilson’s views on Canadian literature, and provides a valuable analysis of the level of criticism and the state of prominent literary publications in Canada. William New’s perceptive introduction brings new insights to bear on one of Canada’s best-respected literary critics.
