Written as a screenplay, Hamlet's Twin chronicles the unusual honeymoon of a contemporary young couple, Nicholas and Sylvie Vanhesse, as they travel to Norway, and, eventually, to a mythical archipelago near the North Pole. Nicholas, while playing Fortinbras in a television production of Hamlet, becomes obsessed with the thought that Fortinbras was Hamlet's estranged twin. His trip to Norway becomes a symbolic journey towards claiming his own rights and achieving his own revenge. Hubert Aquin's Hamlet's Twin is as tragic and as full of self-conscious riddles as its namesake

Les sables mouvants : nouvelle = Shifting sands : novella by Hubert Aquin( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and French and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bilingual edition is the first English translation of Aquin's ground-breaking novella. Alone in exotic Naples, an impassioned Fran#x8D;çois anticipates the arrival of girlfriend Hélè#x8F;ne. Uncertainty and impatience warp his waiting into an obsessive mélange of recollection and speculation. His interior monologue threads its way through a disorienting universe of claustrophobic dilapidated hotel rooms, hostile incomprehension in the streets of a foreign city, and a train station where rendezvous cannot occur. Unremitting psychological exploration drives the narrator towards extreme personal apocalypse. In this novella the young Aquin turns away from ordinary narrative toward the signature qualities of his later writing. Frank sexuality, grotesque imagery, and autobiographical context helped to keep this story from being published. Joseph Jones' accompanying essay situates the novella with reference to other works where psychic conditions generate a striking literary representation that seems to operate largely outside of any conscious tradition

La guerre atomique( Visual )

3 editions published in 1961 in French and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Des femmes dans la rue expriment leur peur dans le climat de psychose qui prévaut depuis que les Soviétiques ont repris leurs essais nucléaires. Le major Maurice St-Pierre, coordonnateur à la Défense civile de Montréal, croit que le danger est grand, que Montréal est une « cible alléchante » et qu’il faut se préparer. Pierre Sévigny, ministre associé de la Défense, reconnaît l’existence d’une psychose de la guerre, estime qu’il y a un danger réel de conflit, croit qu’il faut alerter la population sans l’alarmer, car il émet l’opinion que la prochaine guerre, si elle a lieu, sera combattue avec les armes conventionnelles. Il parle également du programme du gouvernement au sujet des abris. George Goldbloom, vendeur d’abris antiatomiques, parle des succès de son commerce, de l’intérêt qu’il suscite, des prix qu’il exige. Des femmes dans la rue disent ne pas vouloir d’abris, parce que ce serait inutile et parce que cela entretient la peur de la guerre. Dr Jean Bouchard, radiologue, fait la description des effets d’une bombe nucléaire et des conséquences terribles. Dr Pierre Lefebvre, psychiatre, analyse la peur des gens
