Abstract: This master’s thesis in research and creative writing is divided in two parts – a novel and an essay. The former, La résilience des corps [The Resilience in Us], is a dualnarrative novel told from the perspectives of Clara and Romain, a couple whose plans for the future are turned upside-down by an unexpected pregnancy. Through the chapters, the protagonists take turns in the narrator’s seat, going back and forth between their past and present, while Clara’s voice multiplies under the grip of schizophrenia. The essay, titled Femmes sans enfant : une impossibilité? Analyse de La lune dans un HLM de Marie-Sissi Labrèche et d’Un léger désir de rouge d’Hélène Lépine [Women Without Children: An Inconceivable Prospect? An Analysis of Marie-Sissi Labrèche’s La lune dans un HLM and Hélène Lépine’s Un léger désir de rouge], answers a question that arose in the writing process of La résilience des corps: can a woman say « I do not want children » without having to justify her choice? Both novels are analyzed from a feminist perspective as to highlight the theme of motherhood in the characters’ words and action.
