Description/Abstract

I will be analyzing the relationship between the French speakers and the English speakers of Quebec and how it relates to the novel Les Têtes à Papineau. The author Jacques Godbout represents both of these languages through the main characters Charles and François who share one body but have very different characteristics. I will be discussing the Quebec Referendums which provide a historical background for which the book/paper was written. The cultural tension within the Quebecois community between English and French speakers is displayed in the literature and reflects the political realities within the region.
