Présentation


Dr. Cotnoir

Dr. Cotnoir is a short novel which was published at the same time as Ferron's first collection of short stories, Contes du pays incertain in 1962. The sto-ries earned him a Governor General’s Award in that year, while Dr. Cotnoir remained virtually unnoticed until the critics Réjean Robidoux and André Renaud gave it high praise in their book, Le Roman canadien-français du vingtième siècle (Ottawa, 1966).

According to Ben-Zion Shek, Ferron, himself "has indicated that models for the two major characters of his novel, Cotnoir and Emmanuel, were taken from real life. A Dr. Cotnoir preceded Ferron in his medi-cal practice in the Gaspé before the author opened an office in Ville Jacques-Cartier, on the south shore of the St. Lawrence. The action of the novel is set in the latter area in nearby, middle-class Longueuil, where the fictional Cotnoir lives and in the work-ing-class suburbs known first as Longueuil Annex and then as Ville-Jacques-Cartier, where Dr. Cotnoir's entire clientel resides. The character, Cotnoir, is ob-viously a composite of the original model and the au-thor himself."
