Demeter in the archive: Narratorial intrusions in the 3rd draft of Robert Kroetsch's The Studhorse Man

This exhibit consists of selected documents from the Robert Kroetsch's third draft of The Studhorse Man. Using Demeter's narratorial intrusions to guide their selection, these passages show both Demeter and Kroetsch's influence in shaping narrative. These influences are revealed through conflations of archival techniques with biographical investigations, processes of artistic creation, and a need for inchoate anecdotes to be ordered and structured to create narrative coherence.
