La literatura canadiense no es tan conocida como la estadounidense y su historia es la de un país multicultural, rico en matices y con una influencia de muchísimas culturas europeas, africanas y asiáticas que a través de la inmigración han dejado su sello.

Este nuevo Oxford Handbook of Literature refleja muy bien la historia y calidad de un enorme país con una profunda calidad literaria.
