Elizabeth Simcoe (1762-1850) : une amateure et intellectuelle anglaise dans les Canadas. Son œuvre écrite et dessinée, et le projet colonial by Denis Longchamps( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elizabeth Posthuma Gwillim Simcoe était en voyage officiel dans les Canadas de 1791 à 1796. Elle accompagna son mari, John Graves Simcoe qui prenait le poste de lieutenant-gouverneur de la province du Haut-Canada récemment créé. Tout au long de ce voyage, elle rédigea un journal qu'elle envoyait par section à la famille et aux amis en Angleterre. Le journal était illustré d'esquisses prises in situ dont elle se servait pour peindre des aquarelles. Les études publiées à ce jour sont surtout axées sur les écrits de Madame Simcoe, utilisant sa production artistique comme illustration. Récemment, quelques recherches se sont intéressées à son oeuvre peinte, mais de façon très restreinte, n'examinant qu'un petit nombre d'oeuvres à la fois généralement dans le but de situer son oeuvre dans un discours sur le pittoresque. De plus, les auteurs ont abordé leur sujet d'un point de vue canadien; cependant, Elizabeth Simcoe était anglaise. La présente dissertation analyse l'oeuvre d'Elizabeth Simcoe, un corpus de plus de sept cents aquarelles, cartes, esquisses et dessins, en considérant d'abord et avant tout son patrimoine culturel et politique anglais, lequel a formé son regard. Appuyés par des études qui critiquent les approches coloniales traditionnelles, nous avons pu donner à Madame Simcoe la place qui lui revient, celle d'une amateure et artiste engagée. Tout en appuyant le projet colonial de son mari, Elizabeth Simcoe fit aussi, parfois publiquement, la promotion de l'Empire britannique

The Voyageur Canadian Biographies 5-Book Bundle : the Firebrand / Mrs. Simcoe's Diary / The Scalpel, the Sword / The Men of the Last Frontier / Pilgrims of the Wild by Ronald John Stagg( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Voyageur Classics is a series of special versions of Canadian classics, with added material and new introductory notes. In this bundle we find five biographical and autobiographical titles that shed light on some of Canada's most important figures at crucial times in the country's development. William Kilbourn brings to life the rebel Canadian hero William Lyon Mackenzie: able political editor, first mayor of Toronto, and the gadfly of the House of Assembly. The Scalpel, the Sword celebrates the turbulent career of Dr. Norman Bethune, a brilliant surgeon, campaigner for socialized medicine, and communist. Elizabeth Simcoe's diary, describing Canada from 1791 to 1796, is history written as it was being made, an account instilled with excitement and delight. And finally, two titles by the legendary Grey Owl tell his own astonishing story and advocate for a closeness with and respect for nature. Each of these books is an essential classic of Canadian literature.                IncludesThe FirebrandMrs. Simcoe's DiaryThe Scalpel, the SwordThe Men of the Last FrontierPilgrims of the Wild
