Jason Blake’s Canadian Hockey Literature (2010) offers an incisive examination of hockey in Canadian fiction through an analysis of five central themes: nationhood, the hockey dream, violence, national identity and family. Several books of hockey-themed poetry were published during the 1990s and 2000s, such as John B. Lee’s The Hockey Player Sonnets (1991), Richard Harrison’s Hero of the Play (1994), Matt Robinson’s no cage contains a stare that well (2005) and Randall Maggs’s Night Work: The Sawchuk Poems (2008).

Hockey occupies a prominent place in the Canadian cultural lexicon, as evidenced by the wealth of hockey-centred stories and novels published within Canada. In this exciting new work, Jason Blake takes readers on a thematic journey through Canadian hockey literature, examining five common themes - nationhood, the hockey dream, violence, national identity, and family - as they appear in hockey fiction.

Blake examines the work of such authors as Mordecai Richler, David Adams Richards, Paul Quarrington, and Richard B. Wright, arguing that a study of contemporary hockey fiction exposes a troubled relationship with the national sport. Rather than the storybook happy ending common in sports literature of previous generations, Blake finds that today's fiction portrays hockey as an often-glorified sport that in fact leads to broken lives and ironic outlooks. The first book to focus exclusively on hockey in print, Canadian Hockey Literature is an accessible work that challenges popular perceptions of a much-beloved national pastime.
