Group Description

Fur Queen Glamour

"I agree with the other reviewer who rebuts the idea that Celia's narrative is not fullly developed. I think that Lee Maracle did this deliberately. While I don't know Maracle's exact intentions, and can't say whether Celia represents assimilation, I'm pretty sure for a fact that Celia's disappearing narrative is meant to illustrate marginalization - perhaps marginalization of women (especially the women in white town), and most probably marginalization of the Salish community. Similarly, the fragmented nature of the narrative throughout this book represents a feminist challenge to the logo-centric and linear dominance of other forms of literature."

"Anne spent part of her childhood at the court of the Archduchess Margaret. Fraser puts her age at 12-13, as that was the minimum age for a 'fille d'honneur'. It was from there that she was transferred to the household of Mary, Henry VIII's sister, who was married to Louis XII of France. Anne's sister Mary was already in 'the French Queen's' attendance. However, when Louis died, Mary Boleyn returned to England with Mary Tudor, while Anne remained in France to attend Claude, the new French queen. Anne remained in France for the next 6 or 7 years. Because of her position, it is possible that she was at the Field of Cloth of Gold, the famous meeting between Henry VIII and the French king, Francis I."
