about

Rethinking notions of empire and outpost and claims of universal genius in the teaching of literature in Canada ... Literature as cultural imperialism ... Racism and eruocentrism in the literary reinforcement of domination ... Beyond the reactivity of writing back to the Centre ... Fort culture and education and the Canadian state and the normalzing of imperialism .. Beyond the hushed gloom of the Royal Ontaro Museum's austere sense of permanence where a world of masks and disquietude lurks...

"Arnold Itwaru invites us to re-examine our literary critical proprietites and join him in a quest to create a discourse that will open up these avenues of inquiry. Canadian literature deserves to be taken this seriosuly." - Books in Canada.

The insight of the artist Natasha Ksonzek and the critical vision of the author of Invention of Canada and Shanti complement each other in this provocative work.

Natasha Ksonzek is artist, writer, and book cover illustrator. Arnold Itwaru is a writer of fiction and poetry, and is also a social and cultural theorist.
