Canadian Literature

Question 1:

What are some major concerns that dominate 20th century Canadian Literature? Give a reasoned answer.


The initial publications were basic travel and expedition tales. These tales, written in plain English, detail heroic voyages to vast, undiscovered western and northern nations, as well as contacts with First Nations peoples in Canada, the Inuit, and other indigenous peoples around the world known as the Hudson’s Bay and North West Companies. Visitors — explorers, travellers, British officials, and their spouses – were among the first English authors to map, diarize, and write about their views of the United Kingdom of North America.

This foundational documentary travel and settlement tradition foreshadows the documentary tradition of Canadian literature, the quest for origin myths, and the personal and national identity-building aspects of geography, history, and dangerous adventure and discovery. If “all anthologists participate in exclusionary actions,” as Robert Lecker argues in his 1922 article on the anthology Our Canadian Literature, “then curators of Canadian literature courses spanning more than half a century engage in no less!” The objectives of this course fall far short of the almost religious zeal with which early anthologies of Canadian literature sought to uplift, educate, and inspire national sentiment in readers of the dominant Anglo-Saxon culture; additionally, this course is far from representative, let alone exhaustive, of this vast body of cultural work.

Despite its lengthy origins in the eighteenth century, Canadian literature has come a long way to achieve the proportions of the 1970s-era gigantic verbal explosion. This literature has met several roadblocks during its development. The major one has been the psychological barrier that Canadian authors have encountered in their creative capacities as a result of the colonial consequences of their past.Canadian literature has struggled to transcend the repressive mentality engendered by American and British literary traditions. Additionally, it has had to contend with the frontier mindset that served as the foundation for its political centralization and existence.

Another impediment to the development of a strong Canadian heritage of literature has been Puritanism’s grip. Puritans diminished the value of the arts by viewing the artist solely as a source of moral ideas, adopting literary standards with a high degree of moral and social orthodoxy. With the start of the twentieth century, the strength of this viewpoint waned.

Another roadblock for Canadian writers has been regionalism. Its strong undercurrents may be detected in the anglophone/francophone division, the Prairie regions’ distinct western flavour, and the eulogistic tone of pre-Confederation British Columbia writing. The literary business has been forced to confront and resolve these difficulties. The Canadian publishing industry’s precarious economic condition exacerbated issues.Canada has faced tough competition from publishers in the United States and the United Kingdom. Canadian authors who were able to get a British-American publisher or a guarantee from a British institution were guaranteed acknowledgment. This circumstance prompted a large number of Canadian writers to relocate.

A deliberate effort has been made to build a robust publication network. Nonetheless, the literature’s sole distinguishing trait has been a need for a style of expression that represents the Canadian mind and psyche. This cultural interest has persisted, if dormantly at times, as demonstrated by the various shades of writing that have developed over time. Canadian literature may be seen as a movement from its early period of regional knowledge and contemplation to a strong emphasis on imagery, myth, symbol, value, and psychology.

These concerns declined and were supplanted by new critical techniques aimed at decoding accessible writing, which were aided by a variety of institutional support mechanisms. Little magazines exemplify a distinctive literary phenomenon connected with the rise of poetry in the twentieth century. They were a vital part of Canada’s literary universe and infrastructure. Although little periodicals began in Canada in the nineteenth century, they did not achieve literary recognition until after World War I. The birth of these periodicals represents a watershed moment in the history of printing and publication.They exemplify the expansion of literacy by appealing to large audiences. Additionally, they denote the point at which paper and printing became accessible for private and restricted publishing. These journals were critical venues for poets and prose writers. The writer infiltrated Canadian households via radio and, subsequently, television. Wherever she encountered an enthusiastic audience, she carved a niche of acceptance. Readings of poetry and fiction became highly popular as an audiovisual medium for distributing literature.

Additionally, university departments began teaching Canadian Literature. Numerous organisations, such as the British Association for Canadian Studies, were founded. All of these varied types of support have contributed significantly to the establishment of Canadian literature’s credentials.
