The purpose of the study was to explore how the theme of identity permeates the literary works of first- and second-generation Canadian immigrants coming from different backgrounds and spanning the period 1957-1990; a migratory flow in search of identity where old ideals gradually give way to the new. In this period, Canadian immigrant writers renegotiated ideas of self and nation and of belonging and loss with increasing atten-tion in the 80s and 90s being paid to the plurality and diversity of voices across the nation.

Abstract

The purpose of the study was to explore how the theme of identity permeates the literary works of first- and second-generation Canadian immigrants coming from different backgrounds and spanning the period 1957-1990; a migratory flow in search of identity where old ideals gradually give way to the new. In this period, Canadian immigrant writers renegotiated ideas of self and nation and of belonging and loss with increasing atten-tion in the 80s and 90s being paid to the plurality and diversity of voices across the nation.
