French Canadian Prose Masters makes the repertoire of nineteenth century French fiction in Canada available to the English reader and student. This volume presents a full range of French Canadian literature, containing a wealth of folklore, and reflecting the spirit of a people from its beginnings on this continent to the end of the nineteenth century. The social history as preserved by French Canada's storytellers, romancers and novelists speaks to the reader in an unambiguous way that formal histories rarely achieve.
