 Literature of Newfoundland and Labrador
The Icelandic sagas may be the first Newfoundland literature; nobody is sure of the exact location of Helluland, Marklan, and Vinland, and it is possible that one or two, or perhaps all three landfalls, were made on the coast of Labrador and north and east Newfoundland.
Notable among accounts of this kind were Anthony Parkhurst's voyage and description of the country in 1578, and the account of Sir Humphrey Gilbert's ill-fated expedition, as related by his chronicler Hayes, in 1583.
Still, the colony survived and grew, restrictions on settlement were gradually removed, and by the beginning of the nineteenth century, the era of the political pamphleteer and the scholarly churchman had arrived.

Given the size of the world (a decent sized planet) and the amount of time (3 1/2 centuries) that we’re talking about here, this is indeed an ambitious goal.
We will examine why these works represent globally significant developments in the three main genres of literary art (drama, poetry, prose) and read them closely, looking for ways to join the ongoing, global conversation about them and to contend with the rich, often unexpected, ideas that they offer.
We will also look to draw important lines of similarity and difference between these works, both across time and across cultures, and often in new ways that a study of just one national literature couldn’t possibly permit us to see.
