Gabrielle Roy
Seeking Reconciliation Born in St. Boniface, Manitoba, on March 22, 1909, Gabrielle Roy trained as a teacher at the Winnipeg Normal School. Her Manitoba teaching experiences between 1929 to 1937 left her with poignant memories to which she would later give a literary form in La Petite poule d'eau , 1950 (translated as Where Nests the Water Hen Rue Deschambault ,1955 (translated as Streets of Riches Cet été qui chantait , 1972 (translated as Enchanted Summer Ces Enfants de ma vie , 1977 (translated as Children of My Heart ). With much emotion, she recalled these memories in her 1984 autobiography, La Détresse et l'enchantement (translated as Enchantment and Sorrow in 1987). A winner of Canada's Governor General's Award in 1947, 1957, and 1977, Gabrielle Roy, the youngest of eight children of a francophone family from St. Boniface, Manitoba, won international recognition for her first novel, Bonheur d'occasion (1945), receiving the Prix Fémina in Paris and New York's Literary Guild Award. Rendered into English as The Tin Flute, this brilliant first novel has been translated into 15 languages. In 1947, she became the first woman elected into the Royal Society of Canada. [Photo, courtesy The Toronto Star] While in Europe, Gabrielle Roy had worked occasionally as a freelance journalist; back in Canada, she thought it best to continue in the same vein, at least for the moment. It is not as a journalist, however, but as a novelist that she made her dazzling entry onto the Canadian literary scene. She established her stature as a leading Canadian writer when she received the prestigious Prix Fémina in 1947 for

Gabrielle Roy 1909-1983 The Arts
Canadian women have a long tradition of contributing to the arts in Canada as writers, visual artists and musicians. Frances Brooke's novel The History of Emily Montague , set in Quebec and published in 1769, is widely regarded as the first Canadian novel. By the 20th century careers in many fields were opening up to more women, and artists such as Gabrielle Roy and Portia White are part of an important tradition in Canadian life. Gabrielle Roy 1909-1983
While living in Paris and London, Gabrielle Roy began her career as a writer. When she returned to Canada in 1939 she settled in Montreal, against the wishes of her mother. Until 1945 she supported herself through the publication of articles and short stories in Canadian magazines. In 1943 she wrote a series of articles on the poor in Montreal which formed the basis for her first novel, Bonheur d'occasion The Tin Flute ), published in 1945. The novel told the story of the impact of World War II on the lives of a poor family living in the Saint-Henri district in Montreal, and it was an instant hit. The Tin Flute was eventually translated into 15 languages and won the Prix Femina in Paris and the Literary Guild of America Award in New York. In 1947 she was the first woman admitted to the Royal Society of Canada and won her first Governor General's Award for the English translation.

    Gabrielle Roy
    Gabrielle Roy was born in March 1909 in Saint-Boniface, Manitoba, the youngest of eleven children. Her mother and father, then, were relatively old at the time of her birth 42 and 59 respectively. Like Christine's father in Rue Deschambault Street of Riches ), Léon Roy worked as a colonisation officer for the Department of Immigration, a position he held between 1897 and 1915. His politically motivated dismissal occurred six months before his retirement, thus leaving Roy with no pension to support his family. The family's financial predicament during Gabrielle's youth precluded any chance of her attending university, despite having earned stellar marks throughout high school which put her as one of the top students in the entire province. In 1927, after graduating from grade twelve, she enrolled at the Winnipeg Normal Institute where she completed her teacher training. After teaching in the rural communities of Marchand and Cardinal, where she taught for a year, Roy returned to Saint-Boniface. There she accepted a teaching job at the Académie Provencher boy's school, a position she held from 1930-37. During this period, Roy began actively pursuing her interest in acting and joined the Cercle Molière theatre troupe. Her experiences as an actor inspired her to leave her teaching position and travel to Europe to study drama. Spending between 1937 and 1939 in Britain and France, the fluently bilingual Roy studied acting for six months before concluding that she did not desire to pursue a career in the theatre. In the meantime, she had also begun to write articles about Canada for newspapers in Paris and pieces on Europe for newspapers in Manitoba and came to realize that writing could be her vocation.

    Biography, selected bibliography, and an excerpt from the English translation of 'Bonheur d'occasion'.
    Enchantment and Sorrow
    A PENNILESS FREELANCE JOURNALIST selling articles here and there in 1941, Gabrielle Roy lived a marginal existence in a rooming house on Dorchester Street, near Greene Avenue. "For human warmth," she told Donald Cameron many years later,"I used to roam the streets, walk and walk and walk." "I used to choose as the goal of my walks," she said elsewhere, "the pretty avenues of Westmount and the slope of the mountain. One day, by pure chance, by caprice if you will, I instead went south on rue Saint-Ambroise and found myself before I knew it in the very heart of Saint-Henri. What can I say? How can I give you the deep impression I suddenly received? It was like the lightning that strikes lovers; it was a revelation, an illumination." Gabrielle Roy (1909-83) was so convinced that a novel set in the working class world of Saint-Henri was crying out to be written that she feared someone else would get there before her. Though Bonheur d'occasion (later translated as The Tin Flute ) would not be published until 1945, Roy began immediately to bring the district to life in a series of articles for one of her freelance markets, the

    Review by Carol Harvey. excerpt:
    And it happened, following a script right out of the movies: she arrived one afternoon at Lady Frances's and there he sat, a stranger across a crowded room, his dark eyes drawing her closer as Lady Wells shepherded her to his table, coincidentally intent on her meeting this someone really special. Surprised, undone, astonished, afraid it was all a dream, they remained speechless, gazing at each other, wonder-struck, magnetized, energized. Once on their own, the door of Lady Frances's home closed behind them, they walked fingers enlaced, in no particular direction. Romantic love, with all its irrational fears, anxieties, and joys, suddenly crowded everything else out of Gabrielle Roy's life. The above is not an excerpt from a romantic novel, as one might imagine, but from Linda and Bill Clemente's biography of Gabrielle Roy [1909-1983]. Unlike the major six hundred page biography published last year in French by Francois Ricard, which is noteworthy for its sober, objective tone, the Clementes present an emotional and sometimes romantic account of Roy's life. Gabrielle Roy is a famous Canadian author, whose first novel, Bonheur d'occasion [1945, translated into English as The Tin Flute], was an immediate success. It was followed by a dozen other books, including her autobiography and three children's books. She has been called "the English Canadians' favourite French Canadian," and is one of the few authors able to cross the gulf between the two solitudes. Her novels may be urban or rural; some are set in Montreal, others in the Prairies of her youth, and one book is set in the Canadian North. Another positive aspect is that her writing reflects the multicultural reality of Canada, with stories about Blacks, Italians, Chinese, Doukhobors, Ukrainians, etc. Given the scope of her writing, it is not surprising that Roy's novels and short stories are frequently included in high school curricula, either in the original French or in English translation.

    Rewriting Roy
    By PAT ST. GERMAIN Winnipeg Sun
    Francois Ricard
    A few years back, the cranky protagonist of Mordecai Richler's novel Barney's Version decided to beat a malicious biographer to the punch by writing his own autobiography.
    St. Boniface's literary golden child Gabrielle Roy might have had the same idea when she penned her life story Enchantment And Sorrow shortly before her death in 1983. After all, Roy's sister Adele had been obsessed for years with publishing a scathing poison-pen attack on the award-winning writer, and Roy may have counted on having the famous last word.
    Not that Ricard, who was promoting the book in Winnipeg last week, did not admire the woman he befriended as a young man in the '70s. It's just that Roy's autobiography did not paint a complete portrait of the artist's life.
