Keys to History

Another work by Louis-Philippe Hébert, this one in memory of the poet Octave Crémazie, was unveiled on June 24, 1906 in St. Louis Square. "For my flag, I come here to die," reads the inscription beside the allegorical figure - a soldier of New France. It is ironic that this monument was erected near the house of Émile Nelligan, a modern poet whose work is conspicuously lacking in patriotic sentiments. Nelligan, however, insisted that his name be pronounced as a French word.
