An abridged version of the Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature. This version is about half the size of the original 1997 volume. What has been omitted are many of the survey articles, especially on regional and genre literature, which appear in the unabridged versions. Entries on francophone writers whose books have not been translated into English have also been omitted. On the other hand, many of the entries on individual writers have been updated to include descriptions of their recent works.
