ONÉSIME

ONÉSIME

“I never intended to create a portrait of Québec through Onésime.  But that’s what happened, little by little. Of course I tried to make  Onésime typical of his place and time. I named him after one of my uncles who really was called Onésime. … I borrowed many of his expressions from friends and relatives. … I really wanted to record specific expressions and a way of talking that you hardly hear anymore.”                                                                                                                          Albert Chartier. Drawn & Quarterly v. 5: August 2003: 119.

In 1943 Albert Chartier created “Onésime” for Bulletin des Agriculteurs. It recounted the adventures and misadventures of a middle aged Québecois. See CHARTIER Albert.
