ANTONINE MAILLET LA SAGOUINE PDF

The play depicts a poor year-old cleaning lady who, with humour and wisdom, tells the story of her difficult life, in the traditional and colourful Acadian language. Since the Pays de la Sagouine opened in , in the village where Antonine Maillet was born, the writer has written plays only for this site. She develops the characters that La Sagouine speaks about in the original play, and draws on her work to add new characters. For some years now, young authors have been helping her by remaining faithful to the universe she created and the language she employs.

The premise is deceptively simple: a dirt-poor charwoman and former prostitute leans on her mop and tells her life story. But what a story! As she reminisces and rants, telling stories about herself, her friends and neighbours, the priest and his church, and every other aspect of life in her village, she is actually telling the story of Acadie. More than 25 years after its first publication in English, La Saguoine is available once again, this time in a new translation.

Wayne Grady, one of Canada's most distinguished translators, faithfully recreates Acadian speech for an English readership in this new edition, bringing out the cultural richness of the language as well as La Saguoine's strength of character and irrepressible humour.

La Sagouine

Antonine Maillet. La Sagouine. Literary translation is a risky endeavour. Translating an iconic work written in a dialect so specific that it requires a lexicon in its original language is unimaginably perilous. Because the presumed reader of this translation is an Anglophone who has little-to-no familiarity with the original text, I hope to point out ways in which the translation is faithful, but also what is missing so that the reader may have a better understanding of what was lost. Anytime a translator takes on the task of transforming a text from one language to another, there is a process of cultural transfer wherein the characteristic features of the original text must be digested and re-shaped into something else, which inevitably loses some of the uniqueness of the original work. In this case, the original text was written in Acadian French, a combination of 16 th century French words, some First Nations influences, and the emergence of a new vocabulary — often inspired by marine terminology — to describe the physical and geographical environment of post-Expulsion Acadians in New Brunswick.
