Mythistoires de losers: introduction au roman historial des Québécois d'héritage canadien-français

  • Jocelyn Létourneau

Abstract

Assuming that a social group exists insofar as it also becomes the subject of its own history in the theatre of the past, the author attempts to identify some structural components of the historical narration of French Canadian Quebecers. More precisely, he identifies the four narrative pillars of the corpus of stories through which Franco-Quebecers construct a collective representation of themselves, one that feeds their identity as a people and as an historic nation.
