dc.description.abstract This thesis describes the works of Nancy Huston, an Anglophone-Canadian who began her writing career in Paris, and, more importantly, in French, an adopted language. The importance of this author’s cultural and linguistic background serves as the backdrop to the analysis of various themes from her work, such as marginality, creation and death. Feminism, motherhood, and religion are also strong components in Nancy Huston’s work and this thesis examines the interweaving of these themes. Several of this author’s fiction novels, including Cantique des plaines, La Virevolte, Instruments des ténèbres, and L’Empreinte de l’ange, as well as some of her non-fiction work (including Journal de la creation and Nord perdu, but also a number of her short essays) are presented as supporting documentation in this biographical critique of the thesis question. en_US
