dc.description.abstractSport literature is never just about sport. The genre’s potential to explore the human condition, including aspects of violence, gender, and the body, has sparked the interest of writers, readers, and scholars. Over the last decade, a proliferation of sport literature courses across the continent is evidence of the sophisticated and evolving body of work developing in this area. <em>Writing the Body in Motion</em> offers introductory essays on the most commonly taught Canadian sport literature texts. The contributions sketch the state of current scholarship, highlight recurring themes and patterns, and offer close readings of key works. Organized chronologically by source text, ranging from <em>Shoeless Joe</em> (1982) to <em>Indian Horse</em> (2012), the essays offer a variety of ways to read, consider, teach, and write about sport literature.*
