Description

1913. Part Eleven of Eighteen Volumes. Gilbert, Canadian-born novelist and politician, his literary reputation lies primarily on his earlier descriptive, dramatic and historic Canadian stories. He moved to England in 1889 and later served in Parliament. Parker explains that in this edition of his work, each volume will have a special introduction setting forth, as far as possible, the relation of each work to the author, to its companion works, and to the scheme of his literary life. The Lane That Had No Turning and other associated tales concerning the people of Pontiac; together with certain parables of a province are written in keeping with the happily simple and uncomplicated life of French Canada as the author knew it then. The stories in this volume, such as The Tragic Comedy of Annette are written with simple realism, while at the end of the volume are nine fantasies or stories, titled The Parables of the Provinces. While Parker believes these fantasies also possess the spirit of French Canada, they are more or less mystical in nature. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
