Introduction
The Canadian literary world lost several of its pre-eminent authors in 2009. Scott Symons, who passed away on 23 February, was one of the first writers in Canada to deal directly with homoerotic themes. He is best known for Place dArmes (1967), his semi-autobiographical first novel. Robin Blaser, who died on 2 May, was an admired scholar and poet whose major collection, The Holy Forest, was awarded the Griffin Poetry Prize in 2008. He had been part of the San Francisco Renaissance group of poets in the 1940s and 1950s, along with Robert Creeley and Allen Ginsberg; in 1966 he moved to Canada where he became a widely regarded teacher at Simon Fraser University. Phyllis Gotlieb, who died on 14 July, was a poet and novelist, best-known as the grandmother of Canadian science fiction. Her poetry collection Ordinary, Moving was nominated for a Governor Generals Award in 1970, but it is her science fiction that was most influential for Canadian writers of the genre, particularly Sunburst (1964), her debut novel. As the nations economy began to recover from its slowdown in 2008, publishers of Canadian literature continued to issue creative and scholarly works of high quality that were well-received by both critics and the reading public. Numerous outstanding works of fiction were published this year. Kate Pullingers The Mistress of Nothing, which won the Governor Generals Award, presents the first-person narrative of Sally, maid to Lady Duff Gordon in Victorian times, as they embark together on a memorable journey down the Nile. The novel was praised for its fascinating characterization of a strong and unconventional heroine and for its intelligent observation of the play of power and love. The other works that were finalists for the award displayed a brilliant range of themes and narrative techniques. Michael Crummeys Galore is a family saga and love story that spans two centuries and is set in the remote Newfoundland outport of Paradise Deep. Critics

described the book as the authors most ambitious and accomplished work to date and praised his vivacious portrayal of singular characters and a harrowing environment. In The Golden Mean, author Annabel Lyon traces a journey into the far past through the historical tale of Aristotles tutelage of the young Alexander the Great at the Court of Philip of Macedon. This debut novel was singled out for its richness and depth of description, character development, and plotting. The other two finalists are short story collections that skilfully probe the emotional depths of characters in their narratives. The tales in Alice Munros Too Much Happiness are set in the cities and towns of south-western Ontario and coastal British Columbia and highlight the paradoxes inherent in the intense emotional relationships of the protagonists in the stories. Critics praised the authors consummate skill in depicting both intensely believable characters and rich social detail. Vanishing and Other Stories by Deborah Willis is a debut collection of tales about emotional and physical transitions, especially the ways in which people leave and are left by others. The numerous critical accolades for this work emphasize the astonishing thematic range and depth of the stories as well as their unforgettable characters. The Scotiabank Giller Prize for fiction was awarded to Linden Macintyres The Bishops Man, a novel which centres on the sensitive topic of the sexual abuses perpetrated by Catholic priests on the innocent children under their care. The story is narrated by Father Duncan who has been his bishops dutiful enforcer employed to check the excesses of priests and to suppress the evidence. The work was acclaimed by critics for its brave and honest examination of the subject matter as well as its understanding treatment of the works credible and complex characters. On the shortlist for the prize was Kim Echlins The Disappeared, an elegiac tale which retrospectively narrates the obsessive love affair that a teenage Canadian woman has with a young Cambodian refugee who abandons her after the fall of Pol Pot to return home in search of his lost family. The novels depiction of the heroines quest for he lover amidst the genocidal horrors of the Cambodian killing fields was commended for its elegantly-written, spare prose and for its deeply moving account of one of the darkest chapters of twentieth-century history. Another award finalist, Colin McAdams Fall, is set in an exclusive Canadian boarding-school and tells the story of the obsessive love that two teenage boys have for one of the beautiful girls at the academy. The work was acclaimed for its authentic and insightful depiction of the delusions and competition that permeate adolescent sexuality. Anne Michaels The Winter Vault, also on the shortlist, is a love story that takes place in Canada and Egypt during the building of the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Aswan Dam. Critics praised the graceful and lyrical style of this moving narrative about the environment and human relationships. Annabel Lyons novel The Golden Mean was also a finalist for the Giller Prize.

In the realm of poetry, The Governor Generals Award was won by David Zieroth for The Fly in Autumn. His collection, which deals with the theme of loneliness as a rehearsal for the common human fate of death, was acclaimed for the intricate rhyme and stunning breadth of vision in its poetry. David McFaddens Be Calm, Honey, an award finalist, is a collection of sonnets that focus playfully on the elusiveness of experiences and thoughts. Critics praised the wisdom and humanity in the accessible plain speech the author used. Also on the shortlist was Philip Kevin Pauls Little Hunger whose poems are based on the traditional oral culture of his Wsanec Nation ancestry. His book addresses the topics of family, place and language and was praised as a masterful expression of individual exploration and cultural survival. Another finalist, Sina Queyras Expressway, uses forms of pastoral poetry to critique modern day consumerism and a speed-obsessed society. Critics singled out the collection as a courageous, lyrical expression of outrage against a culture lacking in social and environmental conscience. Carmine Starninos This Way Out, the fifth book on the shortlist, explores the various degrees of returning home, particularly images of visits to his childhood neighbourhood and other favourite haunts. His poems were acclaimed as canny and complex odes rendered with great skill and emotional depth. The winner of the Griffin Poetry Prize was Karen Solies Pigeon. Her poems deeply penetrate the delusions and corrosive effects of human desire and were praised by the award jury for their powerful imagery and profound insights. On the shortlist was Kate Halls The Certainty Dream, poems which describe the magical associative leaps between the real world and the dream world. This debut collection was singled out for its lyrical power to invoke moods and simulate processes of thought. The third finalist was Coal and Roses, a posthumous publication by the great Canadian poet P.K. Page. The work is a collection of twenty-one intricately formal glosas, a Renaissance form first created by Spanish court poets. In these poems Page explores the endless possibilities of language represented by the works of artists selected from a wide span of centuries, genres and countries. Critics acclaimed Pages final work as a unique memoir and great homage to her forebears and colleagues. The Governor Generals Award for drama was won by Kevin Loring for Where the Blood Mixes, a play which focuses on the return of a young Aboriginal woman to her west coast community after she has spent many unhappy years in a residential school. The author was lauded for transforming a complex, traumatic aspect of native history into an intensely compelling personal drama. On the award shortlist was Beverley Coopers Innocence Lost, a dramatization of the miscarriage of justice in the case of Stephen Truscott, a fourteen-year-old boy who was wrongfully convicted and executed for the rape and murder of a young female classmate. The play was commended as an especially poignant and

balanced examination of Canadas most infamous wrongful conviction. Joan MacLeods Another Home Invasion, another award finalist, presents the story of a criminals invasion of the home of an elderly couple and his subsequent return as a visitor. The play was praised for its vivid and direct exploration of themes such as family betrayal and the strength of love. Also on the shortlist was Hannah Moscovitchs East of Berlin which dramatizes the tragic life of a Nazi war criminals son who strives to discover the truth about his fathers wartime past. Critics described the monologue narrative form the author uses as a particularly effective technique in confronting the difficult moral questions raised by the plays subject matter. The finalist Talk, by Michael Nathanson, is a dialogue that probes the interaction between the personal and the political when two old friends, Josh and Gordon, get together in a bar and engage in a heated argument about the conflict in the Middle East. The play was very positively reviewed for its engaging, complex examination of the power of language and the nature of friendship. Two particularly noteworthy anthologies appeared this year. The Al Purdy A-frame Anthology is a tribute to Al Purdy, the colossal force in Canadian poetry who died in 2001. The book is not only a collection of poems and reminiscences by many of Canadas greatest writers about their colleague, but it also represents a campaign to preserve Purdys A-frame as a symbol of the centre of his writing universe and as a place of congregation where he influenced many notable Canadian authors. Canada and the Theatre of War is a compilation of stage plays by several national leading playwrights. The collection is the first volume of a series and is timely in its address to the same wartime issues of history, trauma, and identity that overwhelm the world in its current global conflicts. Autobiographies by several major writers were published. Margaret Avisons I Am Here and Not Not-There, a posthumous work, is an extensive self-portrait by one of Canadas most revered writers. Wayson Choys Not Yet: A Memoir of Living and Almost Dying compellingly depicts his traumatic illnesses and how they influenced his creative process. Lesley Choyces Seven Ravens: Two Summers in a Life by the Sea and Lorna Croziers Small beneath the Sky: A Prairie Memoir focus on influential environments. These memoirs trace the writers creative connection of the physical world and the literary world. The publication of Northrop Frye: Selected Letters, 1934-1991 is a major contribution to the record of the professional and personal correspondence of a pre-eminent literary critic of the twentieth century. In the realm of literary criticism, several studies were published that deal with topics of multicultural interest and with diversity issues that have hitherto received scant attention. Plural Sovereignties and Contemporary Indigenous Literature by Stuart Christie and Taking back Our Spirits: Indigenous Literature, Public Policy, and Healing by Jo-Ann

Episkenew focus on themes of sovereign plurality and cultural identity in Aboriginal literature and culture. Two publications appeared that contribute valuable scholarship in neglected areas of literary research about Canadian women authors. Prismatic Publics: Innovative Canadian Womens Poetry and Poetics, edited by Kate Eichhorn and Heather Milne, and Wider Boundaries of Daring: The Modernist Impulse in Canadian Womens Poetry, edited by Di Brandt and Barbara Godard, are both collections of essays that explore the unique and exemplary contributions to Canadian literature by women poets, critics, cultural activists, and experimental prose writers. Two of Canadas pre-eminent journals of literary criticism and cultural studies devoted special issues to timely topics. Volume 201 of Canadian Literature edited by Laura Moss covered the topic of Strategic Nationalisms. Volume 78, issue 2 of the University of Toronto Quarterly, edited by Heike Hrting and Smaro Kamboureli, explored Discourses of Security, Peacekeeping Narratives, and the Cultural Imagination in Canada. Scholars of Canadian literature should find Atlantic Canadas 100 Greatest Books by Trevor J. Adams and Stephen Patrick Clare a particularly helpful reference resource on the literature of the Maritimes.
