In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Letters in Canada 1980 'Letters in Canada' has been appearing as a regular annual feature of the University ofToronto Quarterly since i936. It provides a critical round-up of the more important books produced in Canada in the humanities during the previous year, offering review articles on the various verbal arts (fiction, poetry, drama) in both the official languages and on translations, les etudes sociales, and religion, as well as individual reviews of relevant scholarly books.

To him, too, we say hanks for a keen, critical contribution. We welcome, in his place, Helen -loy, of the University of Lethbridge, a specialist in English-Canadian mting. WJK and BZS ...
