Fifteen-year-old Mélanie drives across the Arizona desert in a white Meteor, chasing fear and desire and the mysterious Angela Parkins, and breaking free from her mother and her mother's lover in their roadside Mauve Motel. And then we are with Maude Laures as she reads Mauve Desert, this story of Melanie, and becomes obsessed with it. She embarks on an extraordinary quest for its mysterious author, characters and meaning, which leads us into the third part, Mauve, the Horizon, Laures's eventual translation of Mauve Desert

Un livre : roman by Nicole Brossard( Book )

25 editions published between 1970 and 1980 in 3 languages and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edition originale, 1970. L'auteur propose "une réévaluation de la situation écriture/lecture". Elle montre le "texte à découvert", (le procédé de sa fabrication) tentant par là de le démystifier. Commme l'écrit en substance le préfacier Claude Beausoleil, l'ouvrage s'écrit concrètement à même l'énonciation du désir de l'écrire. Il est constitué d'hésitations, dérives, "variantes", et n'a recours aux personnages que comme "prétexte au texte". Si cette stratégie métonymique tranchait sur la production littéraire québécoise en 1970, dix ans plus tard ces "quelques attitudes perçues au hasard des dernières heures vécues"(p 1, 60) sont d'un intérêt moins évident. Ce livre a cependant conservé la fraîcheur d'un premier roman, à une époque où plusieurs écrivains québécois, lassés du psychologisme traditionnel, voyaient dans le "Nouveau Roman" la panacée aux maux de l'écriture
Anthologie de la poésie des femmes au Québec by Nicole Brossard( Book )

Installations by Nicole Brossard( Book )

18 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un lyrisme circonspect qui se rapproche prudemment d'un ##Je## "fatal délire d'une beauté impersonnelle". Selon J. Bonenfant "on est comme en train de dépasser un maniérisme formel qui a perdu ses attraits" (ça a quand même pris 25 ans). Admiratif et surpris, le critique, avec un brin de naïve fraîcheur, décrit le recueil comme "une suite de poèmes courts, tous titrés, faciles à lire, mais imprégnés d'expérience vive et de communication immédiate". Grand prix de poésie de la Fondation des Forges, 1989
Museum of bone and water by Nicole Brossard( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in French and English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nicole Brossard's sensual and provocative investigations of the human body--our physical and spiritual museums of identity and desire--pulse and suprise at every turn. In Museum of Bone and Water fingers, thighs, lips, fists, cheeks mingle in the palm trees of Dublin and Key West, the heat of Palermo and Madrid. With each dazzling turn and each 'crazy' silence, Brossard speeds our breath and quickens our hearts, reminding us that poetry too is both a physical and spiritual journey. --Anansi
Surfaces of sense by Nicole Brossard( Book )

Le centre blanc : poèmes 1965-1975 by Nicole Brossard( Book )

12 editions published between 1970 and 1978 in French and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans ce treizième ouvrage de la collection ##Rétrospectives##, sont rassemblées les oeuvres poétiques d'un auteur québécois de la jeune génération. Selon Beausoleil, l'ensemble constitue "un repère essentiel pour lire la progression de la modernité à l'intérieur des textes de fiction écrits et publiés au Québec". Si cette oeuvre n'a pas eu l'audience qu'elle mérite, c'est sans doute parce que l'avant-garde fait peur et que de nombreux lecteurs, professeurs ou critiques, ne peuvent ou ne veulent admettre certains principes fondamentaux illustrés par Nicole Brossard. A savoir qu'"il n'est de poésie qu'impersonnelle" et que par conséquent, elle devient "science, déconstruction des évidences mortes" (celles du coeur, de l'âme, de la patrie, etc.). La rétrospective couvre la période 1965-1975; elle rassemble sept recueils et divers textes publiés en revues. Bibliographie, notice biographique
L'amèr, ou, Le chapitre effrité : théorie/fiction by Nicole Brossard( Book )

20 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in French and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amantes by Nicole Brossard( Book )

13 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in French and English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecrire ##Amantes##, pour Nicole Brossard, c'est, nous semble-t-il, tenter de prouver que l'approche du délire est compatible avec l'esprit (cf. p. 13). Dans cette optique, la fiction pratiquée ne peut-être qu'"excès de réalisme". L'oeuvre, comme l'indique l'auteur, ne fait pas de confidences et cependant quelque chose est confié à la compagne-lectrice privilégiée, qui représente ##le## lecteur, sans cesser d'exister. Un lecteur masculin, implicitement exclu (?), peut-il rendre justice à un tel ouvrage: "entre femmes, la mémoire revient comme une conscience". Il est en tous cas frappé par la façon dont l'abstraction ("excès de réalisme"?) y exerce son pouvoir ("toute vision est en soi mathématique de l'espace"), même si l'auteur multiplie les ancrages dans le réel (banalisé) d'un temps employé, et fait appel à un implicite émotif très fort ("l'expérience infligée au corps des femmes incite à la réalité"). Entre l'essai et le poème, ce texte manifeste une ligne de pensée ferme, l'allusion étant au service exclusif de la thèse. Mais la passion ("de l'intime au politique"), figure centrale de ce livre, fait plus souvent figure de rhétorique, que d'"opéra du dedans"
Double impression : poèmes et textes 1967-1984 by Nicole Brossard( Book )

11 editions published in 1984 in French and Undetermined and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Second tome de la rétrospective de Nicole Brossard (cf. ##Le centre blanc##). Il s'agit de textes et poèmes publiés pour la plupart à la ##Barre du jour## et à ##La Nouvelle Barre du jour##. Quelques corrections ont été apportées. Pour l'auteure, il s'agit d'une "démonstration de ponctuation", ce qui s'écrit en deux livres étant "une ponctuation qui reflète le livre antérieur ou qui révèle le livre ultérieur"
Fences in breathing by Nicole Brossard( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and French and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Invited to a quiet Swiss chateau by the enigmatic Tatiana Beaujeu Lehmann, Anne begins to slowly write a novel in a language that is not hers, a language that makes meaning foreign and keeps her alert to the world and its fiery horizon." "Will the strange intoxication that takes hold of her and her characters - sculptor Charles; his sister, Kim, about to leave for the far north; and Laure Ravin, a lawyer obsessed with the Patriot Act - allow her to break through the darkness of the world?"--Jacket
Yesterday, at the Hotel Clarendon : a novel by Nicole Brossard( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carla Carlson is at the Hotel Clarendon in Quebec City trying to finish a novel. Nearby, a woman, preoccupied with sadness and infatuated with her boss, catalogues antiquities at the Museum of Civilization. Every night, the two women meet at the hotel bar and talk - about childhood and parents and landscapes, about time and art, about Descartes and Francis Bacon and writing. When Yesterday, at the Hotel Clarendon appeared in French (as Hier), the media called it the pinnacle of Brossard's remarkable forty-year literary career. From its intersection of four women emerges a kind of art installa

Notebook of roses and civilization by Nicole Brossard( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The heat of summer on an earlobe, a parking meter, the shadow of crabs and pigeons under a cherry tree, an olive, a shoulder blade - in the poems of Nicole Brossard these concrete, quotidian things move languorously through the senses to find a place beyond language. Taken together, they create an audacious new architecture of meaning. Nicole Brossard, one of the world's foremost literary innovators, is known for her experiments with language and her groundbreaking treatment of desire and gender. This dextrous translation by the award-winning poets and translators Erin Moure (Little Theatres
