Dutch-Canadian Stories and Poems

by Vanderhaeghe, Guy and Cook, Hugh and Boyce, Pleuke

Significant and worth reading for several reasons. As the work of first- and second-generation Dutch immigrants to Canada, they bring a new dimension to the already considerable body of Canadian Literature that portrays immigrant and ethnic experience from the inside. That the Dutch voice would seem hard to discern, given the group’s rapid assimilation, if anything, enhances the importance that these attempts to ‘break the silence’ may have for those interested in the relationship between immigration, ethnicity, and the evolution of Canadian society.” - Tamara J. Palmer, Canadian Literature.
