Honey from the Rock: John Gyles and the Northeastern North American Search
for Anglo Indigeneity

Rachel Bryant

The same systemic issues that thwart effective communication between
Anglo-Protestant settlers and Indigenous peoples in Atlantic Canada today
are replicated in the form of early New England captivity narratives. The
scholarly tradition to which these narratives are conventionally relegated,
that of "early American literature," is a shared northeastern North American
cultural and epistemological foundation. Introducing an idea of "Anglo
indigeneity" to encapsulate the presumptions of knowledge, origin, and/or
belonging that have suppressed or displaced true Indigenous knowledge
throughout the Atlantic region, the article makes a case for reading John
Gyles's eighteenth-century account of captivity among the Maliseet as a
formative if previously unaccepted piece of Atlantic Canadian writing - a
classification that undermines efforts to insulate Canadians against
complicity in "American" colonial violence and war.  <http://bit.ly/utq851a>


The Power of Ruins: William Richard Harris's Discovery of the Americas

Albert Braz

Most Canadian writers have shown remarkably little interest in the Americas
below the United States, identifying far more with the Northern Hemisphere
than with the Western one. The Toronto author William Richard Harris
(1846-1923) is one notable exception. A Catholic priest and an amateur
anthropologist and archaeologist, Harris devoted his four popular travel
books primarily to the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America. Fascinated
with ruins, he was profoundly affected by the remnants of the architectural
wonders that he encountered during his treks. However, partly because of his
orthodox religious views on human origins, Harris was never fully able to
accept that the builders of those once majestic structures were directly
related to modern Indigenous peoples.

The Decline of Hugh MacLennan

Jeffery Vacante

This article examines the critical reassessment in the 1960s of Hugh
MacLennan's novel Two Solitudes. It argues that the novel's fading appeal in
that decade had less to do with questions about its literary value and more
with changing attitudes about who could legitimately write about French
Canadians. By the sixties, critics no longer believed that MacLennan
understood Quebec society and thus could not believe that he could produce a
realistic fictional portrait of the province. This attitude framed the
critical response to his novel The Return of the Sphinx (1967) as well as
the reconsideration of Two Solitudes. The shift away from MacLennan as a
source for understanding Quebec and toward presumably more authentic
French-language voices during this decade also signalled the beginning of a
larger disengagement from Quebec on the part of English-Canadian writers,
who came to believe that they lacked the legitimacy to write about Quebec.

Opera Addict: The Rake's Progress and W.H. Auden's Operatic Theory

Matthew Paul Carlson

The article demonstrates how W.H. Auden's newfound knowledge of the operatic
tradition influenced his approach to writing the libretto for The Rake's
Progress, his 1951 collaboration with co-librettist Chester Kallman and
composer Igor Stravinsky. It contends that the opera's protagonist, Tom
Rakewell, ironically dramatizes Auden's evolving ideas about the singular
capacities of music and opera to represent the subjective experience of the
will's free movement within the bounds of time. Forsaking any claim to
realist objectivity, The Rake's Progress celebrates artifice as it explores
the relationships between tradition and innovation, cyclicality and
linearity, and recurrence and becoming.  <http://bit.ly/utq851d>
