Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Le roman québécois au carrefour des mythes
Subtitle: Les mythologies biblique, grecque et indienne dans Au nom du père et du fils de Francine Ouellette
Written By: Alice Delphine Tang
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Language and Literature 07

Ce livre analyse Au nom du père et du fils, roman de la Canadienne Francine
Ouellette, comme un texte qui reproduit un certain nombre de mythes
d’origines diverses mythologies biblique,grecque et indienne. S’appuyant
sur la psychanalyse et la mythocritique, l’étude en question décrit les
symboles,les archétypes et les schèmes de ces mythes dont les plus
significatifs sont : Cham, Eden, Noë, Manitou et le Grand-Esprit, Œdipe,

A partir de la relation père/fils analysée symboliquement sur les plans
spirituel et charnel, les schèmes de nudité, de transgression, de
malédiction ou de paternité se déclinent en un module unificateur de ces
mythes. En fait, cette étude montre la filiation de plusieurs mythes à ce
roman .L’une des principales fonctions des mythes qui se fondent sur la
transgression est de résoudre les contradictions. Le mythe de Noé symbolise
la renaissance. Ces mythes ont une fonction historique qui décrit
l’évolution des cultures et des idéologies du Québec.
