Imen Diamond asked Margaret Atwood:

Personally ,i first got introduced to the Canadian Literature through you Madam ,and through Alice Munro as well,there are only a handful of canadian writers known in the world today,why is that ? what hinders Canadian Literature from getting an international acclaim,as that of the American and British Literatures ? when will Candian literature be taken seriously?! Thank you so much :)

Margaret Atwood In reality, there are quite a few Canadian writers who have done well internationally, but they are often not recognized as being Canadian.
It's not as old, as a body of writing, as British and American literature. And Canada is not a large (in population), nor has it ever been an imperial power. Those items do factor in…
