Anne Hébert

In Search of the First Garden


Kelton W. Knight

In the opus of Anne Hébert, reconstruction of the past through memory is ever present. This study traces and examines the manner in which Hébert employs memory to effect this reconstruction, how memory serves to bridge the gap between what was and what is, and how this link becomes the mechanism most essential to the complete understanding of her poetics, her characters, and the role she herself plays in the creative process.
