Le Lac d'or
Author: Jacques-Pierre Amette
Publisher: Albin Michel
Plus qu'un simple polar, c'est au coeur d'une enquête dans le Paris du XIIIe arrondissement, ses immeubles délabrés, ses restaurants asiatiques et ses bords de Seine que nous plonge le roman de Jacques-Pierre Amette. Mais aussi dans la nuit des souvenirs d'un flic décalé, lancé sur la piste des assassins de son ex-maîtresse, une prostituée qu'il a trop (et mal) aimée.Jonglant avec les codes du genre, Jacques-Pierre Amette restitue l'atmosphère de Chinatown avec la sombre acuité d'un Simenon. « Amette emporte le morceau tant par son intrigue que par ses dialogues vifs... »Alexandre Fillon, Livres Hebdo. « Un ton singulier auquel on s'attache très vite. »Le Magazine littéraire.

Émile Nelligan (1879–1941) wrote all of his poetry as an adolescent, before spending four decades in a psychiatric asylum. Considering all of Nelligan's work and using a largely textual approach, Émile Talbot points out the Canadian roots of Nelligan's originality. He argues that these are discernable despite Nelligan's use of the discourse of nineteenth-century continental French poetry, particularly that of the Parnassians and the Decadents. Talbot's textual analysis is integrated with a consideration of the social, cultural, artistic, and religious climate of both late nineteenth-century Montreal and the European literary culture to which Nelligan was responding. Talbot considers such pertinent factors as the spirituality of guilt, the role of the mother, and a societal context that rejected both the revelation of the self and the autonomy of art. In doing so he sheds new light on Nelligan's use of European poetic language to fashion a poetry marked by his own culture.

"Trapping surveys for the invasive green crab (Carcinus maenas) were undertaken in Eastern Nova Scotia and in the Bras d'Or Lakes in 1999-2000 and 2005. Interviews were also conducted with fishermen and other coastal inhabitants. Green crab were widespread throughout the sampling area and showed no change in range over the time period. Green crab abundance either decreased or did not change between 1999-2000 and 2005. Catch rates of green crab in the Bras d'Or Lakes were lower in 2005 than the earlier period. The decline in green crab abundance in Bras d'Or Lakes was not clearly linked to lower water temperatures. Outside of the Bras d'Or Lakes, there were no significant differences in green crab catch rate between 1999-2000 and 2005"--Abstract.
