Dans le noir jamais noir

Françoise Major

Pedagogical sheet by Geneviève Dufour
Cégep de Drummondville

This collection of short stories deals with the themes of solitude, marginality, appearances and shattered dreams. The language projects a vision of the world that is disenchanted, without being tragic, using vocabulary that is raw and colloquial. Some texts finish abruptly, creating an unexpected ending, typical of the conventional short story. In other stories, the denouement creates a sense of awareness, subtly ending the text on a more reflexive note.

Et au pire, on se mariera

Sophie Bienvenu

Pedagogical sheet by Catherine Dussault Frenette
Université de Sherbrooke

Short and incisive, this book by Sophie Bienvenu helps students on the Cegep level to progressively become familiar with narrative analysis and to explore the question of distribution of power between male and female characters.
