Reviews about Master of the river (2):
I bought this translation of Ménaud, maître draveur for my wife who doesn't read French. Although there is a minor loss of flavour of the dialogue, by and large the story comes across nicely.
The faults of a novel are often more interesting than its virtues. The flaws in an otherwise perfect work of art--person, place or thing--are sometimes precisely what render it more perfect still. Most of us would prefer our friends to have some failings, to remind us that they're human, and because it is the failings which most frequently endear. So the novel, however otherwise impeccable, should have some rough edges, cleverly hidden though they be, to bestow just that requisite touch of asymetry to the whole, without which the fictional world would be lifeless indeed.

`Menaud' has many perfections and cannot fail to stun anyone who approaches it unguarded for the first time. Savard's realistic portrayal of Canadian lumberjacks and trappers in remote northern realms was an authorial feat of the first order when he performed it, and remains so to this day. His depiction of an innate and awakening sense of national identity among ordinary toilers and adventurers of the forests is both sobering and severe. The sensual images of nature which drench every page, almost every line, can never be forgotten and form much of the novel's vividness and charm. And the spareness of Savard's prose, multi-layered as it is and anything but shallow, might serve as a basic school of writing for anyone interested in the art.

Yet the novel has obvious flaws. The constantly reiterated patriotic lines from Louis Hémon, which form the epigraph to the book and run through it as a refrain, become intensely annoying after a chapter or two: they're overdone. Marie, Menaud's daughter, is somewhat undeveloped as a character and one would like to know more: she seems slightly unreal. The use of regional speech is overwhelming to say the least: no lexicon extant could pretend to explain all Savard's words. And the overarching problem remains: even had everyone in the forests risen against `the English', whatever would they have done to resist? Menaud is believeable as an individual, indignant and crazed. As a practical revolutionary he leaves almost everything to be desired.

But without these drawbacks, Savard's novel would be far too pristine. The perfection cannot be argued. It is the faults which intrigue.
