Book Description: 

Le sacrifice dans les litteratures francophones (Rodopi, 2014) by Carole Edwards argues that pain, compromise or even invisibility are all notions linked to sacrifice, a recurrent theme in Francophone literature. This volume examines how various aesthetics in the following genres: drama, novella, or film (in Quebec, Africa or the West Indies) express sacrifice.
