The Collected Works of Northrop Frye

I am associate editor of The Collected Works of Northrop Frye, based at the Northrop Frye Centre at Victoria University, Toronto.

The Centre is described on the Victoria University web site, under “Libraries, Archives and Research Centres”.

The Collected Works of Northrop Frye project was launched in a small way in 1991, and at its height employed six people. It is now winding down as the last three text volumes make their way through the press. Here is an article I wrote about the project.

Here is a list of works published to date.

Here is the text of a talk (with, of course, all the oral characteristics of a speech) I gave introducing Frye's ideas. If I were writing it today, I would place more emphasis on the role of literature in intensifying consciousness‐an important aspect of Frye's later thought that we are learning more about as his notebooks are published.

Before the Frye project began, I was for nine years the postdoctoral fellow at The Collected Works of John Stuart Mill, where among other things I compiled the master index to all 32 volumes.
