Literature and the Press

What is the effect of the Industrial Revolution in Printing on permanent literature and literary standards? Literature and the Press provides both theory and background for this discussion, so crucial to our own sense of historical canon, mass communications, and enduring literary quality. It should be read by every student of nineteenth and twentieth century literature.

Literature and the Press is a rare book, available in very limited quantities.

Louis Dudek Author

Author Biography

Louis Dudek, born in Montreal, was educated both at McGill and Columbia University. In New York, as a young poet, he corresponded extensively with Ezra Pound. Back in Montreal, he joined the McGill faculty, where his lectures on literature became legendary. In combination with other key figures in the first and second waves of Canadian poetic modernism, he commenced many of the most important small magazines and literary presses of the mid-century. As a writer, critic, and cultural observer, his career was dedicated to ongoing intellectual and artistic discussion. In the years before his death in 2001, Dudek was justly identified as Canada’s premier man of letters.
