This thesis engages in a study of the construction of identity as “process” in four contemporary English-Canadian novels. The novels under discussion are: Cereus Blooms at Night, by Shani Mootoo; Life of Pi, by Yann Martell; Fugitive Pieces, by Anne Michaels; and Childhood, by Andre Alexis. It offers a transnational model of analysis in relation to each of the novels, which enables the investigation of the “multiple” and “fluid” cultural identities in the four examples of contemporary Canadian fiction under scrutiny.
