Nouvelles du Canada anglais : nouvelles ( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in French and held by 24 libraries worldwide
Admettons-le: les grands nouvellistes du Canada anglais, bien connus ailleurs au pays et même à travers le monde, sont méconnus du lecteur québécois. Les douze textes retenus aux fins de cette anthologie représentent une belle occasion de mieux les connaître. Tous écrits durant la deuxième moitié du 20e siècle, ils forment un bon tableau de la production contemporaine. Notons qu'une majorité des auteurs sélectionnés sont des femmes, ce qui est assez représentatif de la production canadienne-anglaise. Entre autres, on y découvre un rapport fascinant à la nature et à la terre, qui n'est pas celui du terroir québécois. On y reconnaît aussi le sens du mystère, typiquement anglais. La traduction est également excellente. Bref, il y a mille raisons de lire cette anthologie
