Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 2, University of Frankfurt (Main) (Institut für England-und Amerikastudien), course: Images of Canada in British Literature from 18th century to the present, language: English, abstract: The following term paper deals with Rudyard Kipling´s perception of Canada in his letters 'From Sea to Sea' and 'Letters to the Family'. Kipling went to Canada twice in his younger years. In his letters, Kipling writes about experiences in his travels. To analyze his perception of Canada, two main topics were chosen: Firstly, the 'Image of Canada' and secondly 'The attitude and stereotypical images of Canadians' in Kipling´s texts 'From Sea to Sea' and 'Letters to the Family'. At the very beginning of this term paper I will give a general overview about the 'Theory on stereotypes'. Because of the fact that I will be a future teacher it is essential to me to also take a look on 'Stereotypes in school' as I named the following aspect. It is important to know how to handle stereotypes in class because the students should learn tolerant thinking. After that, a closer look at the author - Rudyard Kipling - will be taken. A short biography will inform the reader about his life and the background of his thinking. The main part of that work is divided into two topics, 'The image of Canada' and 'Attitudes and stereotypical images of Canadians'. Here, Kipling´s perception will be discussed, analyzed and proven by several quotes. To round this off, a conclusion will be drawn in the end.
