Abstract:

This book discusses how national identity is depicted among Female Canadian authors in the mid to late twentieth century. It shows the traversal of realism and idealism, ethnicity, gender, and the construction of community in several novels. She argues that most critics emphasize the romance aspects of the novels, particularly because these are women authors, and ignore or overlook the realist dimensions to the stories. Doing this often creates a certain stereotype about women authors, and female identity, that poses issues related to one's national identity. While in the 1960's-80's it was no.
