Alone with their authoritarian father on a vast estate where time has stopped, two siblings speak a language and inhabit a surreal universe of their own making, shaped by their reading of philosophy and tales of chivalry. When their father dies and the children set out to bury him, they encounter the inhabitants of the neighboring village, and the pair's cloak of romance and superstition falls away to reveal the appalling truth of their existence.

"In Montreal in the 1920s, in the working-class parish of the Nativite, seventy-five residents died during one terrible night at the hands of an arsonist. The surviving parishioners must now cope with the aftermath of the felony. Among them are Remouald Tremblay, a seemingly simple-minded bank clerk who spends his days caring for Seraphon, his invalid father, while trying to ward off the nightmarish memories of his childhood; and schoolteacher Clementine Clement, who struggles in solitude to keep from going mad in spite of past tragedies, unrequited passions, and the obsessive suspicion that something is terribly amiss with a group of boys in her class."--Jacket

Catoblépas : théâtre by Gaétan Soucy( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in French and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deux mères - une religieuse et une femme qui sort d'un hôpital psychiatrique - se disputent un enfant devenu génial musicien. Accueillie avec circonspection par une partie de la critique, cette courte pièce est présentée comme le prolongement du roman très remarqué ##La petite fille qui aimait trop les allumettes##, dont elle reprend les thèmes sous l'angle de "l'emprise terrible des mères" (G.S.). Selon R. Martel, le drame qui constitue l'oeuvre est "à l'étroit dans un espace discursif qui n'a pas les moyens du roman". Le texte de la pièce est suivi d'une entrevue, p. 63-100. [SDM]
