Anne Hébert made Quebec literature internationally known. Her poems, stories and novels brought the passion and mysteries of rural
Quebec to wider audiences and forced English Canada to translate the French literature of North America.We can never forget the stories in Le Torrent or the poems in Le Tombeau des rois. We meet our sisters and brothers face-to-face on every page. These essays are a tribute to Hébert's literary grace and power as an author. The essays are by Annabelle M. Rea, Deborah Hamilton, Elodie Rousselot, Robert David Stacey, Bénédicte N. Mauguière, Lee Skallerup, and an interview with Anne Hébert by Michel Gosselin.
