Canadian literature

english french body novels

Canadian literature, body of literary works reflecting the English and French heritage of Canada, often focusing on national identity and duality. Since 1945 French-language Quebecois fiction has evolved into an intense and experimental body of writing, while English-Canadian literature has tended to be marked by well-crafted novels of life in the various regions of the country. Robertson Davies, many of whose widely praised novels are set in Ontario towns, and Margaret Atwood, a poet and novelist whose work often has a strong feminist component, are two of the leading figures of contemporary Canadian literature.
