Join Classical Pursuits director Melanie Blake for a virtual trip to beautiful Quebec City and discover underappreciated literary works, many of which have been translated into English. This first part in a series of two gives an overview of Quebecois literary history from the 16th century to the Montreal School and the first decades of the 20th century.
Believe it or not, "not a page of French was printed in New France" from the time of Jacques Cartier's explorations in the 1530s until the establishment of the Quebec Gazette in 1764. Colonial literature came from and looked to Europe. But from the start, stories, travelogues, songs and plays written in and about Quebec also reflected a complex cultural and linguistic milieu and an ever-changing relationship to France and Canada.
Melanie is the director of Classical Pursuits and has led trips in France, Belgium, Colombia, Mexico and Italy. She has been a student of francophone culture since her first day of French class in 1991 and looks forward to sharing the richness of Quebecois literature with you.
