About Marie Uguay
Her participation in La nuit de la poésie was an eye-opener. Shortly before her death, on October 25, 1981, filmmaker Jean-Claude Labrecque produced an intimate, moving documentary in which Marie Uguay bares her soul to journalist and writer Jean Royer. According to her final wishes, Marie Uguay was buried in the Sainte-Jeanne-de-Chantal cemetery, overlooking the river, beside her grandfather, César, on November 3, 1981, in Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot.
Marie Uguay is considered one of the greatest representatives of contemporary Quebec poetry. In March 1994 publisher Les Éditions du Noroît released a book of works by Marie Uguay entitled POÈMES.
