The papers in this volume represent recent scholarship about Booker Prize Winner Michael Ondaatje's oeuvre by scholars working in English-Canadian literature and culture. Contributors to the volume are Victoria Cook, Marlene Goldman, and Sandeep Sanghera with papers on Anil's Ghost, Beverley Curran, Stephanie M. Hilger, Hsuan Hsu, and Steven Totosy on The English Patient, Glen Lowry and Winfried Siemerling on In the Skin of a Lion, Jon Saklofske on Coming Through Slaughter, and Eluned Summers-Bremner on Ondaatje's Poetry. The papers in the volume are followed by a selected bibliography of scholarship about Ondaatje's oeuvre (Steven Totosy), a list of Ondaatje's works, and the bioprofiles of the contributors to the volume. With the objective to render appreciation of both Ondaatje's writing and thought about his writing, the critical work presented in the volume will prove useful to general readers, critics, and scholars alike.
