520    In Narratology and Text, Paul Perron examines the role 
       that literature plays in the formation of French Canadian 
       identity. Perron presents a narratological and semiotic 
       analysis of canonical non-fictional and fictional texts 
       from New France and Quebec, and illustrates how citizens 
       of French Catholic origins living in Canada have 
       constructed their identity by defining the self as part of
       a closed community founded in race, language, and religion,
       and as radically opposed to the other, constituted as an 
       omnipresent heterogeneous threat to the homogenous group. 
       The first section of Perron's study is devoted to an 
       historico-notional overview of some of the major 
       contributors to the theory of narrative, especially that 
       of A.J. Greimas. The second and third parts initially 
       examine the primary and founding texts of first encounters,
       Jacques Cartier's Voyages of 1534 and 1535, and the Jesuit
       Relations, and then turn to discussions of six 
       representative Québécois novels from the mid-nineteenth 
       century to the end of the Duplessis era. Each work is 
       examined in terms of its definitions of the self, the 
       other, the group, the nation, language, race, and religion,
       as well as its treatment of the idea of place - the 
       utopian here as opposed to a dystopian there or elsewhere.
       Fusing semiotics, narratology, stylistics, and literary 
       and cultural theory with one of the only English-language 
       studies on Greimas, this important work offers an original
       and thought-provoking contribution to studies of 
       literature and semiotics.
