Abstract

Settlers of the Marsh was first published in 1925 following a controversy regarding the treatment of its topic. Some critics condemned it as “obscene” and “indecent”. Churches issued warnings to their congregations to avoid its scandalous contents, only several decades later to be recognized as a landmark in the development of Canadian novel.The novel belongs to Canadian realism. It is a fiction of regional or prairie realism, dealing with cosmopolitan issues such as: love or romance, sex or sexuality, murder or homicide, twentieth century, nineteenth century, marriage, prostitution or prostitutes, rural or country life, farms, farmers, or farming, Canada or Canadians, ambition, labor, houses, mansions, or manors, frontier or pioneer life etc. In this respect, the novel presents a psychological portrait of life in Canadian West. It is a story of a young Swedish settler who comes to the “New World” to set up a new life for himself and fulfill his dreams. The story of his life, however, comprises of real difficulties a young settler in Canadian marshes faces.
