At the same time, it is a novel on a grand social scale, spanning and documenting the tumultuous half-century in which a new, industrial urban society crowded out Quebec?s traditional rural one.Winner of the Governor General?s Award and numerous other national and international literary prizes, Thirty Acres is a universal story of birth and death, renewal and reversal, ascent and decline, and a masterpiece of irony and realism.From the Paperback edition.Ringuet, the pseudonym of Philippe Panneton, was born in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, in 1895. Educated at Laval University and later at the University of Montreal, he graduated from the latter's medical school in 1920. After three years of postgraduate study in Paris, he returned to Montreal, where he set up his medical practice and later rejoined the medical faculty of the University of Montreal.Ringuet?s distinguished career in medicine complemented his deep commitment to literature. His first book, Writing?in the Style of?, was a series of literary parodies of famous writers. His first novel, Thirty Acres, a panoramic portrait of Quebec?s traditional agrarian society in the process of change, won immediate critical acclaim and was translated into Dutch, English, German, and Spanish.Ringuet?s later fiction often explores the discontent that confronts his character in their urban settings.In 1944 Ringuet was a founding member of L?Académie canadienne-française and served as its president from 1947 until 1953. He was appointed Canadian ambassador to Portugal in 1956.Ringuet died in Lisbon in 1960.From the Paperback edition.One?We?re getting after the fall ploughing pretty soon, Mr. Branchaud. Just when I was coming away, Uncle said: ?Tomorrow we?ll have to plough the field at the bottom of the hill.? If only the rain lets up for a while.?The two men sat in silence. Their chairs were tilted against the wall, balanced on two legs, and at regular intervals they took their pipes out of their mouths and, leaning over the edge of the veranda, sent a stream of saliva into the weeds. Then they took up their tranquil pose again and stared off into the distance.Before them stretched the plain, splashed with colour by the first October frosts. Clumps of trees stood out in sharp relief, the black willows, already stripped of their leaves, blending into a pattern with the green beeches. In the distance ran the long belt of woods, the first outpost of the great Laurentian forest: a brilliant symphony in which the low notes were supplied by the dominant greens of the conifers, the high by the scarlet of the Norway maples.Immediately in front lay the King?s Highway, winding and deserted. The water stagnant in the ruts mirrored the sky in two long parallel blue ribbons. The road ambled off to north and south. Coming from the country, it was in no particular hurry; it curved aside to pass under a friendly old willow tree and made a bend to brush past someone?s front doorstep. It would get there in the end; the later the better.A buggy drove by, and when the horse passed in front of the house he broke into a smart trot. On the seat sat a courting couple, stiff and rather awkward in their Sunday best. The young man waved his whip in greeting. B. Brand NEW unread book. Soft cover bound book.
