By Sara Jeannette Duncan,Janette Turner Hospital

Sara Jeannette Duncan’s vintage portrait of a turn-of-the-century Ontario city, The Imperialist captures the spirit of an emergent kingdom during the instance of 2 younger dreamers. Impassioned via “the Imperialist idea,” Lorne Murchison rests his bid for place of work on his imaginative and prescient of a rejuvenated British Empire. His sister Advena betrays a kindred appeal to the high-flown beliefs in her love for an unworldly, and unavailable, younger minister. Nimbly alternating among politics and romance, Duncan constructs a perfectly ironic object-lesson within the Canadian advantage of compromise.

Sympathetic, funny, and fantastically distinctive, The Imperialist is an astute research of the paradoxes of Canadian nationhood, as appropriate at the present time as while the unconventional was once first released in 1904.
