Unit description:

With the ‘Quiet Revolution’ as a political and cultural background, women writers have placed an important, innovative and inspiring role in 20th-century French-Canadian literature. The units focuses on works by three major writers: Sur la route d’Altamont and Bonheur d’occasion by Gabrielle Roy, La Sagouine by Antonine Maillet and Kamouraska by Anne Hébert. They raise issues such as the place of women in society and the burden of poverty and deal with French linguistic and cultural specificity in Anglo-speaking environment.
