Writers of Newfoundland and Labrador
Many of Newfoundland’s authors have preserved much of the province’s cultural heritage by capturing timeless topics and themes while others have broken through the boundaries of their time and place.
Writers of Newfoundland and Labrador: Twentieth Century includes articles on 32 of Newfoundland’s most prolific and influential authors. Lisa de Leon provides a concise biography on each writer, followed by synopses of their published work. In most cases, samples of work by each author are included to introduce the reader to aspects of their individual style, providing a springboard for additional research.
