dc.description.abstract A biographical essay on Adele Wiseman, whom the author credits as being "[o]ne of Canada’s most highly regarded writers of the second half of the twentieth century." The article describes how Wiseman, who was born in 1928 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, found refuge from the antisemitism that surrounded her in the world of literature. Her first novel, "The Sacrifice," published in 1956, was one of the first English language novels to broach, if obliquely the subject of the holocaust. Although Wiseman was not a prolific writer, she nevertheless earned a literary reputation. She was recognized with many honors, including the Governor General's award,, She also taught and served as writer in residence at a number of universities, including McGill, the University of Manitoba and the University of Western Ontario.
