Title: Les reprsentations de la monstruosit au fminin dans la littrature qubcoise contemporaine: Vickie Gendreau, Clara Brunet-Turcotte et Audre Wilhelmy
Author: Dion-Robineault, Melissa
Abstract: The objective of this study is to evaluate the impact that the Quiet Revolution (1960-1966) could have had on following generations who did not participate in it. The authors that were chosen for this research, Vickie Gendreau, Clara Brunet-Turcotte and Audre Wilhelmy, are young women whose focus is on intimate writing. A feeling of anxiety towards existence and identity seems to have taken over the literature of Quebec in recent years to a point where authors create feminine characters who feel so powerless that it overwhelms them and kills their will to live. Here we try to find socio-historical reasons that would have motivated the emergence of this kind of figure in Quebec literature. Even though the view of women is not necessarily flattering or idealized in these texts, female perfection seems to be a true obsession: a monster from whom female characters try to break free.
