COLLECTED WORKS OF NORTHROP FRYE

Based on Victoria University’s extensive archives, this 30-volume series examines the development of Northrop Frye’s thought and life as documented in his diaries, correspondence, speeches, interviews, fiction, notes, book drafts, student essays, and love letters. These previously unpublished writings open a startling new window on Frye’s mind, inviting a rich appreciation of his intellectual habits, spiritual aspirations, and wide-ranging insights on religion, romanticism, education, literary criticism, and imagination. In additional to his private writings, this series organizes Frye’s publications into thematic groups and contextualizes them with annotations by renowned Frye scholars. Each volume is indexed. Volume 30 is an overall index of the complete series. This project was completed under the general editorship of Alvin A. Lee (McMaster University) and was funded by the Michael G. DeGroote family, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and Victoria University at the University of Toronto.
