    Pleurer ne sauvera pas les étoiles by Guérrette, François

    Québec: Les éditions Poètes de Brousse, 2012 Pleurer ne sauvera pas les étoiles est sans aucun doute sa plus belle réalisation, la plus précise, la plus lourde d'engagement face à ses ancêtres coureurs des bois, forts, courageux mais illettrés. Lui le lettré, l'intellectuel est-il aussi fort et courageux ? Pleurer ne sauvera pas les étoiles est une ouvre singulière dont le sujet est le destin, le sens de la parole donnée, la fidélité, la continuité pour survivre ou disparaître longuement comme toutes les étoiles.

    Soudain le Minotaure by Poitras, Marie- Hélène

    Québec: Triptyque, 2002 Québec: Triptyque, 2002 Soudain le Minotaure, ou comment l'horreur peut surgir dans une vie, sans prévenir, la brisant à jamais. C'est sur ce thème-choc qu'est bâti le premier roman de Marie-Hélène Poitras, une toute jeune femme qui, jusqu'alors, signait des critiques dans la revue Lettres québécoises. Construit en deux récits parallèles, le roman donne d'abord la parole à l'agresseur qui, du fond de sa prison, laisse libre cours à son esprit malade. Plus tard, c'est Ariane qui raconte son long processus de guérison. Malgré quelques maladresses et une structure qui aurait gagné à être resserrée, Soudain le Minotaure est un livre troublant, dérangeant, qui marque la naissance d'un véritable écrivain au style déjà bien affirmé, parfois cru et précis comme la lame du couteau du bourreau, parfois douloureux et juvénile comme la plainte de la victime.
