When French-Canadian literature freed itself from the tutelage of Paris
Abstract:Soon after the Second World War, a dispute broke out between a group of French intellectuals and the Montral-based publisher Robert Charbonneau. Charbonneau's views on the grievances of the French are brought together in: La France et nous. Around the same time, Charbonneau's friend Berthelot Brunet wrote a Histoire de la littrature franaise in which he is critical of French culture. The two texts mark a break with France, a refusal of its hegemony, and at the same time they give an idea of what was to be known as la littrature qubcoise.
