Canada Profile

Canada Flag

If you cannot resist the Call of the Wild, Canada is the place to be.The vast wilderness, stretching from the arctic to the prairies and the craggy cliffs of the eastern seaboard, has always been an inspiration for writers and poets, but with its modern English and French-speaking cities, Canada has a great combination of influences.

Many Canadian novelists have been influenced by the country’s unforgiving backwoods, including Jack London’s White Fang. Set in the Yukon it depicts the Klondike Gold Rush and is a riveting adventure classic. The coastlines of Canada are also dangerous places to be as Pulitzer Prize winning author E. Annie Proulx reveals in The Shipping News. National Book Award winner Barry Lopez delivers his travelogue, Arctic Dreams, in striking prose.

History and humour prevail in Canadian film. Passchendaele, a World War I drama set in Alberta and Belgium has all the qualities of a Hollywood blockbuster, while comedies such as Canadian Bacon, directed by the infamous documentary-maker Michael Moore, shows that Canadians have a talent for comedy.

Musicians such as Avril Lavigne, Arcade Fire, Justin Bieber and Neil Young all have their roots in Canada.The memorable and popular song Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams, along with the folk-sounding ballads of Stompin’ Tom Connors are just a few examples of the type of music this vast country offers.
