During the past 20 years, Manitoba has experienced an astonishing surge of literary activity, dazzling in its diversity and in its divergence from conventional writerly wisdom. Striving to keep pace with this accelerated growth, a lively critical discourse has emerged which is, of necessity, sensitive to the rapidly shifting cultural and epistemological currents reshaping the context for literature.
Kenneth James Hughes is a former professor of English at St. John's College, University of Manitoba. Born in England, he has since resided in Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Bahrain, Sri Lanka, Monreal, and Winnipeg.
