The Dynamics of Cultural Exchange: Creative and Critical Works - Edited by Licia Canton

The Pink House and Other Stories by Licia Canton

The Dynamics of Cultural Exchange is a remarkable collection of critical essays and creative works – short stories, poetry, and drama – in English, French and Italian. One of the pleasures of reading this collection is the variety of themes and styles it encompasses. A number of topics recur, such as the challenges of language and translation, relations between the generations, history and memory, and the persistent theme of identity.

The Dynamics of Cultural Exchange is an important contribution to Canadian multiethnic studies. The dynamics of cultural exchange, this collection proposes, occur between writers and artists, not only of Italian descent, but of other cultural heritages as well. This volume represents a bridging of the arts and a bridging of cultures; it evokes an encounter among artists (writers, painters, musical performers and film-makers) from across Canada and the Atlantic who work in many forms and who are influenced by many languages and cultures
