The History of Emily Montague

A new scholarly edition of what is considered the first Canadian novel.

Written by a British colonist, Frances Brooke, in an epistolary form, The History of Emily Montague is remarkable for its observations of the lives and traditions of Quebecers and "Natives," as well as the manners of the upper-British classes. This is a scholarly edition that brings to light new information about the times and the context of the novel.
