Other titre : English writing in Quebec after 1976 : a case study of six literary works based on the theory of minor literature by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari
Referring to the theory of minor literature developed by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari in their work Kafka : pour une littérature mineure, this thesis investigates contemporary English writing in and about Quebec as a possible minor phenomenon. Motivated by the debate around the affirmation of a possible Anglo-Québécois community, I investigate if such a literature has the elements to reterritorialize itself within Quebec as an Anglo-Québécois literature. This thesis analyzes in total six works, three plays and three novels: David Fennario's Balconville, Vittorio Rossi's Paradise by the River, Ann Lambert's Very Heaven, Marianne Ackerman's Jump, Linda Leith's Birds of Passage, and Jeffrey Moore's Prisoner in a Red-Rose Chain. Therefore, the main objective of the thesis is to parallel Deleuze and Guattari's theory of minor literature with its three features, where minor works are written in a deterritorialized major language, demonstrate a political potential and are built upon a collective enunciation, to six"AngloQuébécois" works in order to see to what extent this corpus can be read as a minor literature.
