Other Wise: Postcolonial Places in Canadian-Jewish Women’s Writing

Michael Greenstein

Abstract


This essay examines the work of six Jewish-Canadian writers within a postcolonial context. Adele Wiseman's protagonist Hoda in Crackpot, the poetry of Miriam Waddington and Miriam Mandel across the prairies, the poetic prose of Anne Michaels' Fugitive Pieces, and the shifting Quebec perspectives of Monique Bosco and Régine Robin -- all serve to deconstruct any dominant power structures in Canadian history and society.
