Robertson Davies Reconsidered (UTQ Volume 78, Number 4, 2009)

Guest edited by Russell Morton Brown and Donna Bennett

Eight papers in this special issue of the University of Toronto Quarterly had their origin in a symposium called ‘Reconsiderations of Robertson Davies,’ which took place at Massey College, the graduate college at the University of Toronto. Davies helped found Massey and he served,from 1963 to 1981, as its first master. Prior to his role as master, Davies had (after an abortive career as an actor) been known to the Canadian public as a journalist, a witty and satiric columnist, and a newspaper publisher; a successful playwright; and an internationally acclaimed novelist. To those roles, he added librettist and author of ghost stories. Our aim in this issue is to reconsider this substantial legacy from the perspective of the nearly fifteen years that have passed since Davies died. The first decades following a writer’s death are a good time to ask if his work will last – and conferences and special issues offer opportunities to reassess a writer’s reputation and to gain new perspectives on his work. … (from introduction by Donna Bennett, Russell Morton Brown)
