Title
Une poésie de dissidence : étude comparative de l’évolution des poésie québécoise et canadienne modernes à Montréal, 1925-1955
Abstract
A comparative study of French-language and English-language Montreal poets of the 1920s to the 1950s. The author argues that these two linguistically separate communities of poets followed a parallel evolution during this period. Among the English-language poets examined are: members of the McGill School (A.J.M. Smith, F.R. Scott, Leo Kennedy, A.M. Klein) and some independents (E.J. Pratt, Dorothy Livesay) in the 1920s and 1930s; and representatives of the Preview (Patrick Anderson, P.K. Page) and First Statement (Louis Dudek, Irving Layton) groups during the 1939-45 war and the postwar period. The author maintains that even if the focus is not always on the same themes by these linguistically-separate poets, a comparative thematic study demonstrates that the viewpoints of these Montreal poets are concerned with similar problems in the 1930s and 1940, that their texts generally give rise to "a poetry of dissent".
