Life Before Man

Life Before Man vividly portrays three people in thrall to the tragicomedy some call love. Imprisoned by walls of their own construction, they are forced to make drastic choices -- after the rules have changed and the boundaries have become faded. There is Elizabeth, with her controlled sensuality, who seeks solutions in the wrong men; Nate, wry and gentle husband of Elizabeth, racked by an inability to decide; and Lesje, quiet and inexperienced, who prefers dinosaurs to most men. Hanging over all of them is the ghost of Elizabeth's dead lover ... and the threat of three lives careering inevitably toward potential catastrophe.

  • "Edition originale, 1979. Après s'être intéressée aux problèmes liés à la dualité linguistique canadienne (cf. ##Survival##), l'auteur aborde ici la dualité sexuelle. Elle fouille les relations qui unissent et divisent un couple (Elizabeth et Nate) au-delà de la coexistence pacifique qu'ils affichent en façade. Le mariage moderne, selon M. Atwood, n'a nullement mis fin à la guerre des sexes. Le Québec est bien présent dans l'oeuvre: Nate vit avec passion la période référendaire québécoise au milieu de l'indifférence des Torontois. [SDM]."
