Description

 

Poet, playwright, and librarian, E´va Circe´-Co^te´ was a prolific journalist writing for progressive newspapers under a number of pseudonyms. As a feminist and a freethinker who fought for equality and secularism, she offers a non-conformist perspective on Quebec society and politics in the first four decades of the twentieth century.

Freethinker is translated from the 2011 Clio prize winner, E´va Circe´-Co^te´, libre penseuse, 1871–1949.

Contributor Notes

Editorial Review

 

This beautifully written and argued book sheds new light on Montreal’s cultural “avant-garde.” Her perspectives on everything from war through nationalism will overturn many readers’ understandings of Quebec ideas and society over the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is a stunning contribution to the history of Canadian and Quebec women.

 

— Bettina Bradbury, professor emerita, History and Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies, York University
