Political involvement of „bourgeois” play of Marcel Dubé

Renata Jakubczuk

Abstract


Considered to be one of the founders of Quebec theater, Marcel Dubé began to make his mark on Quebec’s literary scene in the 1950s. In his works, he focused on the underprivileged parts of society to expose a variety of injustices, then attacked the bourgeois in order to charge them with their responsibility for the fate of the Quebec people. After revisiting the historical context that determined the political situation at the dawn of the Quiet Revolution, this article aims to show the playwright’s involvement in the Quebec liberation movement.
