As the most recent contributions to the Quebec-Vichy controversy
demonstrate, one has to be very careful of anglo-Canadian treatments of
Quebec. The anglophone establishment in Canada (Universities included)
tend to immediately "brand" any treatment sympathetic to Quebec as
separatist and to trace the movement back to faschist manifestations in
the pre-war period. This is part of the problem with Delille's treatment.
Unfortunately as some of the earlier writers noted, many novelists come
closer to capturing the ambivalent Vichy sentiment...see Roch Carrier's
_La Guerre, Yes Sir_ or Roger Lemlin, _La famille Plouffe_.
Good luck,
Daniel Hickey
