Popis In her fiction, And the Birds Rained Down (Il pleuvait des oiseaux, XYZ, 2011), Jocelyne Saucier, French-Canadian writer, narrates history of the huge forest fires that took place in the beginning of the 20th Century in the province of Ontario. Coming from the center to the periphery of this woods and seemingly forgotten history, two women, a photographer and an old lady, arrive to retrace the story of the events meeting two outcast senior men and getting familiarized with them. In our contribution, we analyze how do these two universes of a periphery and a center confront one another, what spatio-social dichotomies we may observe within the novel and what is their outcome for the narration as well as for the protagonists of the story.
