Oral tradition, straight forward narration, fictional lens, women subordination, quintessence.


Canadian literature has an oral tradition and history. Canadian writers have made significant contributions to English Literature. Without their works, literature would have missed some of the most adored characters of the last century. Most of them are women characters. The space of women in each and every field is an important topic to be analyzed. There are several writers like Margaret Atwood, Margaret Laurence, Alice Munroe and Beatrice Culleton who presents the truth in a straight forward narration. The space of women, inside the fiction, outside fiction, as a reader, and as a writer is the same but it is revealed only to the eyes wearing fictional lens. Gendered space is a vital theory for feminist scholars working in metropolitan studies, topography, and forecast. Earlier writers like Laurence and Atwood have said the same in different terms. Margaret Laurence a wonderful feminist writer flourished during 1960s and 70s; she rises as one of the most adored women writers and influenced readers with her clever portrayal of women subordination. This paper tries to bring out the quintessence of Canadian fiction.
