Description

"If it's possible to prejudge Jude on the merits of Obomsawin, the translation of the new novel is something to anticipate." -- Globe and Mail

Daniel Poliquin's third novel is a multifaceted portrait of one of the most complex characters in Canadian fiction: Jude the arctic explorer, Jude the great seducer, Jude the quintessential heroic figure. Projected through the eyes of four women who have known and loved him, Jude appears first as a man of incredible intellectual and professional accomplishments, but gradually emerges as a human being driven by internal anguish and emotional weakness. Through this towering character, Poliquin explores the reailty that underlies the Canadian myth of the land, the haunting emptiness behind the facade: Jude the eternal wanderer, Jude the tortured soul, and in the end, Jude the vanished hero.

Visions of Jude, in its French edition, was the winner of the prestigious Grand Prix du Roman du Journal de Montreal, the Le Droit Literacy Award and the Ottawa-Carleton Literary Award.

This is a new release of the book published in June 1992.
