In 1973, Hildi Froese Tiessen published the first academic essay about Rudy Wiebe's fiction (included in this volume). Since then, in scholarly essays and talks, she has examined with great insight the literary careers of Di Brandt, Patrick Friesen, Julia Kasdorf, Sandra Birdsell, and David Waltner-Toews, as well as key origin figures like Arnold Dyck and Al Reimer. Dr. Froese Tiessen’s widely admired essays include several (among the first of their kind) which situate Mennonite literature in relation to postmodernism, as well as investigations of the sometimes disconcerting ethnic and theological assumptions about Mennonite artistic practice. The essays in On Mennonite/s Writing are the first solo collection of Dr. Tiessen’s writings, and she has written a major new piece especially for this publication.
Robert Zacharias writes: “Whatever the subject, a Hildi Froese Tiessen essay is a recognizable thing. Her prose is disarmingly clear and always confident, stylish even, leaping from history to theory to text and back again. And she is absolutely canny in anticipating objections to her own argument, raising them in plausible terms and then countering them with notable relish.”
