George Story Lecture – Margaret Duley (1894-1968) as a critic of the Great War

Margot Duley

The writings of Margaret Duley, Newfoundland’s first novelist and one with an international readership, can be read as romances but they also contain biting social critiques. The Great War prompted little overt criticism in Newfoundland. Duley’s work stands as an exception. Historian, Dr. Margot Duley, will examine the familial, personal and historical context of her aunt’s views on World War One.
