This magnificent and final novel from Anne Hebert completes an internationally acclaimed literary oeuvre that is fearless in its explorations of the dark and violent side of human passion. Rose-Alba Almevida, her husband Pedro, and her son Miguel live by modest means in a Paris apartment, but each, in their way, dreams of returning home to Spain to reclaim the honour and identity stripped of them by the immigrant struggle. Yet where Pedro plans and saves for a vineyard plot to which he can retire, Rose-Alba and Miguel have vastly different dreams. For them Spain is an emotional sta

Aurélien, Clara, Mademoiselle et le Lieutenant anglais : récit by Anne Hébert( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in French and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Après une brève initiation amoureuse par un lieutenant anglais, meurtri et fuyant, une jeune femme retourne vivre auprès de son père, un veuf silencieux qui s'occupe d'elle depuis sa naissance. Un conte plutôt tragique, à la fin elliptique, situé dans la région de Québec. L'auteure renoue avec l'univers tourmenté et poétique d'oeuvres antérieures, et confirme sa prédilection pour les enfances d'exception et les "mouvements du sang". [SDM]
Kamouraska; roman by Anne Hébert( Book )

49 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A classic of Canadian literature by the great Quebecoise writer, Kamouraska is based on a real nineteenth-century love-triangle in rural Quebec. It paints a poetic and terrifying tableau of the life of Elisabeth d'Aulnieres: her marriage to Antoine Tassy, squire of Kamouraska; his violent murder; and her passion for George Nelson, an American doctor. Passionate and evocative, Kamouraska is the timeless story of one woman's destructive commitment to an ideal love. Translated into seven languages, Kamouraska won the Paris book prize and was made into a landmark feature film by Claude Jutra. This
Est-ce que je te dérange? : récit by Anne Hébert( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in French and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La jeune fille enceinte, l'homme peureux et sa femme légitime. L'épure d'une tragédie et le drame de "l'enfance inaltérable". Un récit intense et feutré, sombre et poétique. Le lecteur ne peut que s'attacher à cette héroïne "acide et têtue", démunie et blessée, dont la vie a basculé à la mort de la grand-mère qui l'avait adoptée ("Ma grand-mère, c'est mon nid"). M. Labrecque a salué cette "prose en apesanteur entre la vie et la mort" et signalé qu'Anne Hébert a déjà été plus "envoûtante" ("l'émotion se dérobe"). [SDM]

Hebert's poetic gift is in perfect pitch here as she reveals life's profundity in even the most common occurrences in poems that meditate on nature, solitude, war, love, aging, and the creative process. --House of Anansi Press

Poems by Anne Hébert( Book )

12 editions published between 1962 and 2004 in French and English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'édition reprend ##Le tombeau des rois## et ##Mystère de la parole## (déjà rassemblés dans ##Poèmes##, Editions du Seuil, 1960), ainsi que ##Le jour n'a d'égal que la nuit##, poèmes écrits entre 1961 et 1989, publiés par Boréal en novembre 1992. De cette poésie, Pierre Emmanuel écrivait en 1953 qu'elle était tracée "dans l'os par la pointe d'un poignard"; mais on se doit de signaler le caractère "très inégal" (L. Bourassa) des poèmes écrits dans les années 1980. A noter que l'édition n'est pas complète: il manque, en particulier, le textes des ##Songes en équilibre## (1942)
