This work examines the early literature of Upper and Lower Canada, written in both English and French, in an historical context. It includes all the newspapers, periodicals, and separately published volumes produced in the two colonies between the end of the War of 1812 and the middle of the 19th century, as well as relevant archival material. Data is organized by analyzing questions of nationality, identity, historical events, social relationships and chronological change. The work examines the economics of publication as well as methods of literary distribution, regional aspects of publishing and reading, as well as the sources of literary content in the newspapers of the time. When the literary productions are analyzed the authors assert that the attitudes of the native-born English resemble those of the native-born French more closely than they do those of the English immigrants. Many of the analytical results featured in this study contradict established theories and seek to demonstrate the range and extent of literary life in a complex period in Canada's cultural development.
