Abstract

Margaret Laurence, has been one of the pioneers of contemporary Canadian Women’s fiction in English. She is a famous novelist, editor, critic, and author of short stories, non-fiction, and books for children in the twenty first century Canadian literature. Her subterranean insights and determined nature are echoed in all her novels. Her novels have donated significantly to the description of a national uniqueness in Canadian Literature and to its worldwide status, noticing an explicit landscape and culture as a significant setting in the world. She was born in the prairie town of Neepawa, Manitoba (model for the fictional Manawaka). She possibly comprehends women better than men and has certain things which she obtains merely through women. In The Stone Angel, Laurence highlights the need for women to stay connected with the feminine aspects of their selves.
