University of Ottawa Press, 2001 - 178 páginas

This collective assessment of the achievement of Robertson Davies addresses the basic problems in reading his artfulness, as a moralist committed to the practice of doubling, disguise, irony and paradox, of dwelling in "gaps" or spaces "in between" The essays present new insights on a broad range of topics in Davies' oeuvre and was the first conference devoted to Davies' work since his death in 1995.
