Summary

A classic of Canadian literature by the great Quebecoise writer,Kamouraskais based on a real nineteenth-century love-triangle in rural Quebec. It paints a poetic and terrifying tableau of the life of Elisabeth d'Aulnieres: her marriage to Antoine Tassy, squire of Kamouraska; his violent murder; and her passion for George Nelson, an American doctor. Passionate and evocative,Kamouraskais the timeless story of one woman's destructive commitment to an ideal love. Translated into seven languages,Kamouraskawon the Paris book prize and was made into a landmark feature film by Claude Jutra. This edition features a brilliant new introduction by Noah Richler.
