Canadian Short Stories free pdf Originally issued as an Oxford World's Classic, this groundbreaking book remains one of the finest anthologies of Canadian short fiction ever published, its selections as readable and relevant as they were back in 1960 when first chosen by editor Robert Weaver. Among the 27 stories included here are enduring classics by such early giants of Canadian literature as Frederick Philip Grove, Morley Callaghan, and Sinclair Ross- works by writers such as Alice Munro, Mordecai Richler, and Mavis Gallant, then viewed as relative newcomers, now firmly ensconced in the pantheon of Canadian letters- and stories by Ethel Wilson, Hugh Garner, Joyce Marshall, and others less well-known to twenty-first century readers but whose stories still grip the imagination and tell us something about Canada and ourselves. Canadian Short Stories is a wynford book-one of a series of titles representing significant milestones in Canadian literature, thought, and scholarship.
