Echoes of Antiquity in Maria Chapdelaine

Description

Article exploring Louis Hémon's classic Québec novel, "Maria Chapdelaine" (1913), in light of criticism that has considered it in terms of Québec agrarian and religious mythology. The ways in which the novel employs mythological themes that have "roots in classical antiquity"(62). How the novel can be measured by critical insights into the concept of mythology more generally. Specific comparisons of Hémon's work and characters with "The Odyssey," Greek architecture, and some of the temporal and cosmological concerns of literary antiquity as explored by modern critics.
