About the Book

As the first collection of literary criticism focusing on Alberta writers, Wild Words establishes a basis for identifying Alberta fiction, poetry, drama, and nonfiction as valid subjects of study in their own right. By critically situating and assessing specific Alberta authors according to genre, this volume continues the work begun with Melnyk's Literary History of Alberta.

“This collection creates its own landscape. Though limited in the number of Alberta writers it was able to include, the ones that are covered seem representative of the rich diversity that constitutes Alberta literature. ... Ultimately, Alberta literature retains much of the wildness suggested in the title Wild Words, refusing to be corralled into simple categories.”

—Lily Iona MacKenzie, Prairie Fire Review of Books, April, 2010
