Louise Dupré

Keeper of Words

This major Quebec poet has devoted her life to the words that inspire us, to the literature that awakens us, always striving to reveal through words the things hiding in plain sight. Louise Dupré has published more than a dozen books of poetry, including La main hantée (2016), which won the Governor General’s Literary Award. She is also a novelist (La memoria, L’album multicolore), has taught at UQAM, and wrote the play Tout comme elle (2006), which was directed by Brigitte Haentjens and performed by a cast of 50 actresses.
