Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Daniel Burgoyne’s Broadview edition of A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder is a refreshing, re-energised insight into an old classic. It is both scholarly and accessible, bringing important scholarship, key graphics, and of course the work itself, into fresh perspective. What I especially value is the way the volume will appeal to both general readers and critics, and the way that more recent scholarship on the novel has been updated and synthesized to produce new understandings of this unusual Canadian phenomenon.” — Gerry Turcotte, President, St. Mary’s University College, Calgary, Alberta

Started out slow but got better as the tale unfurled. Must like old- time tales. I wanted to know more at the end. More about the "lost" sailor and more about the 4 "Sunday" sailors who found the copper kettle.
