Summary
This collection offers 16 original essays on Nobel laureate Alice Munro's writings, providing an enlightening range of approaches and interpretive strategies by her most eminent critics. The essays cover the entirety of Munro's career, from the first stories she published as an undergraduate at The University of Western Ontario in the early 1950s to her final books (presumably), The View from Castle Rock and Dear Life. Following the editors' introduction--which surveys Munro's recurrent themes, explains the design of the book, and summarizes each contribution--Munro biographer Robert Thacker contributes a substantial bio-critical introduction to Munro's career. The book is then divided into three sections, focusing on Munro's characteristic forms, themes, and most notable literary effects. In total, the collection provides many new perspectives, reconsidered positions, and scholarly-critical analyses that will enhance the reading, teaching, and appreciation of Munro's remarkable indeed miraculous fictions
