Présentation


The Juneberry Three

Named after the first tree to blossom in the spring and the first to die in the fall, The Juneberry Tree is a modern day Alice in Won-derland. The young heroine of this delightful tale is named Tinamer. Through her eyes we see a whole new universe. It is polarized, di-vided by the family home in Longueuil. In the back of the house is the "good side of things," a phantasy-world which Tinamer inherits from her father's imagination, the "Sea of Tranquil-lity" separating the past from the dream world. In the front of the house is the "bad side of things." Tinamer's father leaves by the front door to go to work, crossing the street to where mechanization taints the world of dream. A day comes however, when Tinamer must go by the "bad side of things" to go to school. She discovers that things are neither com-pletely good nor completely bad, representing a farewell to childhood, that happy state of abso-lutes.

It is rare that an author is apotheosized in mid-career. But so prolific is Jacques Ferron, and such is the race of events in modern Quebec, that the critic and Professor of Medieval Literature at Laval University, Jean Marcel, has written a whole volume about Fer-ron, entitled Jacques Ferron malgré lui (Edi-tions du Jour, 1970). In the opening paragraph to this book Marcel states: "Thanks to Jac-ques Ferron, Quebec will be as well known in times to come as Arabia."
