Overall, the Canadian literature presents a reflection on nature, life and the country’s position in the world. Divided into two parts, English and French, the Canadian literature has become richer in the last decade and authors like Margaret Atwood, Yann Martel and Alice Munro, won some of the most prestigious international awards. Visual artists from Canada have developed a wide array of highly individual styles and most of their artworks are being preserved museums. Painters like Emily Carr, William Ronald or Jack Bush had a strong impact over the modern art of Canada.
