Rewriting Apocalypse in Canadian Fiction

Traditional apocalyptic narratives highlight the drama of a chosen elect. Contemporary Canadian fiction, however, typically portrays the apocalypse from the perspective of marginalized individuals barred from Paradise, creating a distinctly anti-apocalyptic discourse. Marlene Goldman traces the history of the apocalyptic literary tradition and its key motifs in close readings of Canadian works that challenge rather than embrace apocalypse's key features.
