Reviews

"Dr Pawliez’s book contains rigorous scholarship, valid interpretations, and results which point the way to further assessment of Michèle Mailhot’s contribution to narrative fiction. The book is recommended without reservation to readers interested in twentieth-century Quebec literature and society and in narratology." -Glynnis M. Cropp, Professor Emeritus, Massey University

"Although some feminists attempted to read the author’s work (if not reduce it) to fit in with their own views, Myreille Pawliez reveals that Mailhot’s work does not yield to these readings. Michèle Mailhot frees herself from the traditional values of the patriarchal society as well from a certain women’s militantism, giving rise not only to the distrust with which the author was regarded in her day but also to the ensuing neglect of her writing. The evolution in feminist thinking means, however, that Michèle Mailhot’s work can now be revisited and, as Myreille Pawliez indicates, can be looked at in the light of the works of the following generation, including the likes of Louky Bersianik, France Théoret, Louise Cotnoir, Louise Dupré, Nicole Brossard, Madeleine Gagnon, Suzanne Lamy or Yolande Villemaire." - Prof. Bernard Andrès, Université du Québec à Montréal
