Celebrating forty years on the Main Street
of Erin Village, Wellington County
The Porcupine's Quill has developed a reputation for publishing noteworthy books of criticism that challenge readers to think deeply about the field of Canadian literature and to demand more of the country's poets and authors—canonical or otherwise. The list below details a number of reasoned, fiercely argued collections sure to spark debate among those who delight in the written word.
‘An introduction, six papers from the conference at the University of Western Ontario and a brief biographical note constitute the first “full scale scholarly examination” of Canada's earliest novelist. But neither the editor nor her team of biographer, textual critic, literary historian and literary critics are under any delusions; to reconstruct the life, work and reputation of the mercurial Major John Richardson after one hundred years of comparative neglect is not the work of a single moment, nor of a single conference.’
—David Richards, British Journal of Canadian Studies
