Francois-Xavier-Anselme Trudel was a lawyer, politician, and journalist, a maverick and free spirit who undermined all the institutions and values he professed to hold dear. He was a forceful proponent of Roman Catholicism of the harsh, conservative, ultramontane variety, who disobeyed ecclesiastical authority; he stressed family values but neglected his wife and children in his pursuit of fame and fortune; a conservative; an anti-Semite; personal in his attacks on those who disagreed with his point of view. He was a strong French-Canadian nationalist. He died a lonely figure, disliked and ridiculed by almost everyone he had come into contact with during his rather short lifetime. The man behind the self-righteous exterior is revealed in this biography, his public career fleshed out through a clearer understanding of his personal life.
The formative years (1838-1869); virtue scarred (1869-1871); provincial conservative loyalist (1871-1875); federal conservative loyalist and champion of French-Canadian rights (1875-1880); a family shattered; the turning point (1880-1885); a maverick emergent (1885-1887); bitter critic (1887-1891).
