Canadian Culture

An Introductory Reader

Editor: Elspeth Cameron (CA)

The surest way to the hearts of a Canadian audience is to inform them that their souls are to be identified with rock, rapids, wilderness and virgin (but exploitable) forest. This critical statement no longer explains Canada’s largely urban culture. Multiculturalism, feminism, postmodernism and regionalism - these and other vital movements jostle for expression in today’s Canada. Wherever there’s a centre, a new margin vies for attention. Whenever a new voice catches the country’s ear, another appears to challenge it. However styles form, new ways of expression keep shaping themselve.s Nation without a narrative? Yes. But in the music, literature, painting, history and popular culture of this country, you can always find a soul.
