Literary Umbrellas

I've been collecting literary umbrellas for years, possibly to make up for all the actual umbrellas I've left on trains and busses in that same period of time. And it turns out I'm not alone in my preoccupation—Marion Rankine had recently published BROLLIOLOGY: A HISTORY OF THE UMBRELLA IN LIFE AND LITERATURE, which I can't wait to read. And whose release seems like a perfect occasion for a list of umbrellas in Canadian literature!
