Double talking: essays on verbal and visual ironies in Canadian contemporary art and literature
ECW Press, 1992 - 220 pages
In the mass media today, as well as in high art and academia, there seems to be what one recent magazine has called an irony epidemic. This collection of essays considers irony in its Canadian literary and artistic context, with titles such as “Who Says That Canadian Culture Is Ironic?” and “Ironies of Color in the Great White North: The Discursive Strategies of Some Hyphenated Canadians.”
