From the Paper:

"Identity is a common theme in many forms of literature. However in Canadian short stories the idea of the multiple identities is an important theme. In many cases characters show different regional and ethnic identities in the same story. The short stories that will be used to prove this point are "Death by Landscape" by Margaret Atwood, "The Loons" by Margaret Laurence and "The Boat" by Alistair MacLeod". Each of these stories takes place in a different region of Canada and each of these regions has a unique ethnic composition."
