Sample text

The typical writer in Munro’s fiction is, then, ambivalent about her work but driven to do it. She struggles for representative accuracy, which failures of love and/or talent undercut. Munro’s writers labor to connect memory and identity, and the problems inherent in such connection provide the central conflicts of Munro’s fiction. But always, connection itself is the subsuming theme. Three kinds of connection are especially important to the Munro Weltanschauung: travel, the connection of one place to another in a journey replete with metaphorical meaning; change, the connection between past and present; and sexual love, probably the most fundamental and highly problematic of human connections.

As a writer of narratives whose recurring subject is the past and the use we make of it, who stubbornly insists on a thing called truth while repeatedly despairing of our ability to reach it, Munro appears not to endorse such an ultimately barren and rep- 34 Katherine J.
