Let us introduce Mary Melfi, an accomplished writer, by way of a simple question: in Canada, who establishes the literary canon? Is it a simple exercise of power? For as the essays in this collection will demonstrate, Melfi's work is not only - to use those hanging definitions -- a work of excellence, it is so remarkably well developed in all genres from poetry to the novel, to the play, to the modern fairy tale that it deserves a recognition that has been late in coming. Melfi's work achieves importance by bringing into play displacement, irony, ethnicity, class and gender -- for being both of the times and outside of time. This is what we ask of our artists -- not to be ideologically compatible, but to be critically endowed. That Melfi is not more widely known in the Canadian literary field causes us to muse about the sociopolitical diktats that still marginalise a body of work of international stature. The contributors are Domenico D'Alessandro, William Anselmi, Lise Hogan, Francesco Loriggio, Eva Karpinski, and Marino Tuzi.

Mary Melfi's work appears unclassifiable. There are surrealist fireworks, gnostic philosophising, black and white humour, an absurdist appreciation of the process of existence. Hers is not one voice, but rather a number of voices organised in a modern fugue: a counterpoint to its own cantus firmus. "Swordfishes, swordsmen too, are equipped / to get along in life / but I'm equipped to be a dancer on the stars. / Your love is my equipment." (Sword Dances).

This is a posthumous collection of poems. Though Axel Soestmeyer did not live to see the poems into print, this edition Chr(45) faithful to his intentions Chr(45) makes public the complex expression of an emotional thinker and intelligent lover. His mastery of vocabulary and the liberties he took with syntax and rhythm permit him to control a vital inspiration that could easily have slipped into vulgarity. Axel Soestmeyer assigns to the sexual and the spiritual similar roles, revealing not the facile moral solution of conformism but an understanding of the savage stuff which constitutes the human and his relationship to others and, ultimately, to God.

This book examines the concept of translation as a return to origins and as restitution of lost narratives, and is based on the idea of diaspora as a term that depicts the longing to return home and the imaginary reconstructions and reconstitutions of home by migrants and translators. The author analyses a corpus made up of novels and a memoir by Italian-Canadian writers Mary Melfi, Nino Ricci and Frank Paci, examining the theme of return both within the writing itself and also in the discourse surrounding the translations of these works into Italian. These ‘reconstructions’ are analysed through the lens of translation, and more specifically through the notion of written code-switching, understood here as a fictional tool which symbolizes the translational movements between different points of view. This book will be of particular interest to students and scholars of translation and interpreting, migration studies, and Italian and diasporic writing.

This historic collection, the first of its kind, is devoted to the discussion of Italian-Canadian writers publishing in English, in French or in Italian. These critical essays include analyses of some important writing: F.G. Paci's Black Madonna, the poetry of Mary di Michele and Pier Giorgio Di Cicco, the plays of Marco Micone, Gens du Silence and Addolorata, the novels of Maria Ardizzi and many other titles. The ten contributors make significant additions to the study of Canadian literature: D.C. Minni examines the short story; Alexandre Amprimoz and Sante Viselli consider Italian-Canadian poetry; Roberta Sciff-Zamaro analyses Black Madonna; Robert Billings fathoms di Michels's verse; Frank Paci considers the task of the novelist. Fulvio Caccia's essay on the literary languages of Quebec is controversial as are Filippo Salvatore's arguments on the writer and politics. Antonio D'Alfonso speculates on future developments among the more than one hundred Italian-Canadian writers. In addition to editing the collection, Joseph Pivato introduces the volume with a long essay on ethnic history and literary criticism in Canada, includes another essay on Italian-language writers and concludes with a detailed bibliography and an index.

Before Pier Giorgio Di Cicco was made Poet Laureate of Toronto (2004-2007), he was instrumental in the establishment of Italian-Canadian literature as a phenomenon in Canadian culture. He achieved this through his own impressive list of publications such as The Tough Romance (1979) and Virgin Science (1986). He also encouraged many other young writers across Canada to publish and participate in the transformation of Canada's national literature into one of many colours and voices. The essays in this volume examine Di Cicco's publications in this pluralistic social context. The contributors include Linda Hutcheon, Mary di Michele, George Elliott Clarke, Domenic Beneventi, Licia Canton, Joshua Lovelace, Stacey Gibson, Jim Zucchero, Clea Mc- Dougall and Joseph Pivato. There is also an interview and a useful bibliography.

The poems in this selection were written and published between 1954and 1977, except for two poems which have never appeared in book form before. Fred Cogswell writes crystalline poems. A Cogswell poem is the result of concentra-tion; this intentional focussing on a particular person or thing, or language itself for that matter, enables him to cross over the pitfall of dull colloquialism. His sole obsession is to capture, to quote Stanislavsky, the life of a human spirit.

In 1985 Joseph Pivato edited 'Contrasts: Comparative Essays on Italian-Canadian Writing', a pioneering collection on minority writing in English, French and Italian. The present book builds on Contrasts by focusing on specific questions -- oral roots, women, self-hatred and translation -- and by expanding on the Canadian discourse to include minority writing in Australia and other countries. In her Foreword, Sneja Gunew states: "The final strategy clearly consists of continuing the dialogue with people like Joseph Pivato and thus to be far more nuanced in our research into cultural difference. Like Joseph Pivato, I believe that the study of these writings both focuses on local differences and transcends the opportunism and tunnel vision of nationalist projects by connecting us to the world at large."

This book of interviews has a parallel structure: on one level it describes the careers of fifteen artists of Italian origin; on another level, invisible and subterranean, it depicts the life of the Italian community in Montreal which, instead of being interpreted, interprets, instead of being a passive object becomes a subject active in and through history, reflecting and refracting it in the course of its own metamorphosis, like the phoenix dying in the night and rising again in the morning. Persons interviewed: Francesco Iacurto, Guido Molinari, Mario Merola, Vittorio Fiorucci, Tonino Caticchio, Camillo Carli, Flippo Salvatore, Marco Fraticelli, Mary Malfi, Mario Campo, Paul Tana, Dominique De Pasquale, Marco Micone, Antonio D'Alfonso, and lamberto Tassinari.
