Kamouraska

Kamouraska

Author(s): Anne Hébert

Location(s): Kamouraska

Genre(s): Fiction, Historical

Era(s): Mid-19th century

Kamouraska is based on a real nineteenth-century love-triangle in rural Quebec. It paints a poetic and terrifying tableau of the life of Elisabeth d’Aulnières: her marriage to Antoine Tassy, squire of Kamouraska; his violent murder; and her passion for George Nelson, an American doctor. Passionate and evocative, Kamouraska is the timeless story of one woman’s destructive commitment to an ideal love.
