• Moi, violent ?

    Nous sommes collectivement de plus en plus conscients de la violence du monde : on parle de discriminations raciales, de violences sexistes, de crimes incestueux... pour ne citer que quelques-unes des violences ordinaires. Mais toujours, le violent, c'est l'autre ! Et dans nos relations, c'est justement cette peur de l'autre qui est source de violence. Cet ouvrage explore les différents aspects de cette violence interpersonnelle : la séduction, l'emprise, la jalousie, la médisance, l'indifférence, l'idéalisation...

    Pour chacun de ces poisons relationnels, il met en regard la lecture psychanalytique et le point de vue des trois religions abrahamiques - le judaïsme, le christianisme et l'islam - car dans leur quête d'Absolu, les religions sont les premières concernées par ces formes de violence. Accessible, précis et vivant, ce livre essentiel vient éclairer ce qui constitue le coeur du fanatisme en s'appuyant sur des exemples de la littérature, d'une part et sur des extraits des textes fondateurs (la Bible et le Coran), d'autre part.

    The Epiphany, 1916.
    On an unforgivingly cold winter's night in Val-Jalbert, Lac-Saint-Jean, a twelve month-old child, wrapped in furs, is discovered by a nun from the convent school. The discovery of this abandoned girl, possibly afflicted by the dreaded chicken pox, deeply upsets the nuns from Notre-Dame-Bon-Conseil who have just taken on their teaching duties. Val-Jalbert, a small factory-town built at the foot of the Ouiatchouan River, is run by the pulp and paper company. The villagers are hard-working and have everything they need. Life in Val Jalbert flows in an orderly fashion, morally irreproachable.

    The child of the night increasingly disrupts the nuns and their neighbors, the Marois family, who eventually take her in. But where does Marie-Hermine, with eyes so blue, come from? Why did her parents drop her off like a heavy burden on the steps of the convent school? Over the years, the orphan girl will become affectionately known as ``the Winter Nightingale'' because of her extroardinary voice, and she will become the pride of the factory village which is later abandoned, doomed after the closure of the industry in 1927. Homes are now empty, gardens left unattended, and the nuns leave the barren village. During these unfortunate incidents, Marie-Hermine's past resurfaces and jealousies erupt, such as the love of a young metis named Toshan, encountered during a trip to Lac-Saint-Jean.
