"Moishe, an Orthodox Jew and refugee from Russia, is raising his grandson, Aaron, alone in Montreal. Moishe works as a tailor, maintains his strict adherence to Orthodoxy, and educates Aaron to follow in his path. Aaron becomes increasingly estranged from his grandfather, however, and his meeting with the militantly secular Jewish girl Viedna confirms his decision to embrace modernity and materialism and to reject his faith entirely. The story portrays a tragically polarized situation in which neither side is able to communicate or to build an alternative world view that incorporates both tradition and modernity."--BOOK JACKET

Préface, p. v-xx. Un très beau roman publié pour la première fois en 1951; le second de Thériault, qui n'est pas sans parfois rappeler Giono ou Ramuz. Dans un petit village arrive un homme qui se dit dompteur d'ours, un "survenant" comme il y en a tant dans notre littérature: sur son passage, désirs et conflits latents s'embraseront soudain, rompant la quiétude habituelle. Sensuel et plein de saveur, une oeuvre à redécouvrir. Dossier, p. 299-379 (réception critique, chronologie et bibliographie). [SDM]

Antoine et sa montagne; roman by Yves Thériault( Book )

17 editions published between 1969 and 1995 in French and Undetermined and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Réimpression d'un roman publié en 1969 aux Editions du Jour. Le roman d'une idée fixe. En 1835, un fermier dans la trentaine néglige sa terre. Il persistera, toute sa vie, à contempler de loin une montagne qui ne lui appartiendra jamais. Pour l'éditeur, cette montagne (qui finira pas porter le nom du héros) symbolise "la fierté, l'identité, l'indépendance, voire même la reconnaissance et le respect que les Québécois voulaient obtenir et qu'on leur a toujours refusés". Ce n'est qu'une interprétation de l'oeuvre, parmi d'autres possibles. Style simple, composition nette, intérêt soutenu. Très accessible
Kesten; roman by Yves Thériault( Book )

17 editions published between 1968 and 1989 in French and English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Réimpression 1968. Ce roman, qui a pour cadre l'Ouest canadien, s'inscrit bien dans ce qu'André Major appelle "une mythologie de la virilité". Il s'agit d'un drame à "caractère fabuleux" qui met aux prises un descendant de Viking et sa femme, avec un étalon noir "puissant comme la damnation de Dieu" (p. 9). Pour Jacques Ferron, ##Kesten## raconte l'histoire d'un couple incestueux qui provoque la colère des dieux. De cette passion, "renaît le monstre qui la figure."
