    Captive by Margaret Atwood( Book )
    3 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in French and held by 45 libraries worldwide
    Ce roman s'inspire d'un sanglant fait divers suivi d'un grand procès qui ont bouleversé le Haut-Canada victorien du 19e siècle (1843). L'héroïne, qui a échappé de peu à la peine capitale, se confie progressivement à un médecin américain et se prête à des séances pré-psychanalytiques. Le suspense se maintient jusqu'aux dernières pages. Au lecteur de juger si Grace Marks fut tentatrice ou victime, complice ou otage. Pour certains critiques cette ambiguïté du personnage principal concerne la femme en général. Et le milieu féministe est déchiré. [SDM]
