Poetics and Imaginaries of Montréal in Contemporary Québécois Literature

Abstract

Contemporary narratives no longer display a singular city but a palimpsest of cities. “L ’esprit migrateur" (Pierre Ouellet) and “la rencontre transculturelle" (Patrick Imbert) inhabit the new literary imaginary. What representations of Montréal do texts, such as La Québécoite by Regine Robin and La femme qui fuit by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette present? How can we describe the experience of wandering through the city of Montréal? And what are its relationships with transculturalism? If the topic of mobility has been common in Québécois literature since the 1980s, mainly in the works of migrant writers, mobility is nowadays not geocultural: it is rather symbolic and ontological
