Many Canadian and Québécois 1 writers use northern settings, symbols, and motifs as a means of demarcating their fiction as distinctly Canadian or Québécois. Perceiving Canada as “the true North strong and free” (as the well-known line from the national anthem goes) is a widespread myth in the English Canadian imagination, and the intrinsic nordicity of Quebec is unquestionably a significant component of Québécois self-perception and culture. Yet the development of the idea of North, or imaginaire du Nord , in the two cultures is rooted in different historical events and cultural references. A significant deviation between the literature of Quebec and English Canada is the acceptance of the city as a location of North. In this chapter, I will provide a comparative study of the development of the idea of North in English Canada and the imaginaire du Nord in Quebec from a cultural studies standpoint, which takes into consideration historical, literary, and cultural developments.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>The North in English Canada and Quebec</dcterms:title> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2018-03-07T11:00:59Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Kannenberg, Christina</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
