Description:

This paper looks at the way in which these texts present the life of women in the Canadian countryside - one a French-Canadian girl born in Quebec, the other an English emigrant who moves to Canada with her husband. The paper asserts that while both women are subjected to some of the same pressures, the two books offer a stark contrast in the way these two women live out their lives.

From the Paper:

"In this paper I will look at Louis Hemon's "Maria Chapdelaine" and Susanna Moodie's "Roughing it in the Bush" and examine the way Maria Chapdelaine and Susanna Moodie are presented as examples of women living in the Canadian countryside. While both women are subjected to some of the same pressures, the two books offer a stark contrast in the way these two women live out their lives. In "Maria Chapdelaine", Louis Hemon presents a paternalistic world in which women are relegated to the status of second-class citizens."
