Description:

The paper posits that Chester Brown's graphic novel depicting the life of Metis and Canadian national hero Louis Riel is a rare popular history: readable, compelling, even brimming with excitement. The paper asserts that two of its most astonishing selling points are: a. It is a true story, and b. it is a Canadian story. The paper explains that Riel was a rebel, a warrior, a savior, a lover and a mystic, and his is arguably one of the most compelling talents in our national history, along with John A. McDonald, James Wolfe, Marshal McCluhan, Leonard Cohen and Glenn Gould. The paper asserts that none of these figures possess the same romantic energy as Riel, which Brown's brilliant graphic novel illustrates well.
