D’une révolution l’autre : figures de l’engagement chez Hubert Aquin et Mordecai Richler
Abstract
In the French Quebec literary context, one would not dare compare Hubert Aquin and Mordecai Richler, two writers whose political convictions seem to oppose each other. But the author argues that we should leave aside Quebec politics and try to reflect on the literary representations of the revolutions proposed in these Quebec authors' respective works. She points out that Richler and Aquin share a fascination for revolutionary engagement. They consider it like an impossible ideal or a pure fiction. She asks whether it is possible to draw parallels between the Quebec revolution, dreamt by Àquin's "Prochain Episodes" hero, and the ghost of the Spanish Revolution, fantasized and imagined by many of Richler's characters? She answers this question while jumping "over the trap of the nationalization of literary engagement."
