Norman LEVINE, Novelist And Poet: 1923-2005
Known as a writer's writer, his short stories have been compared with work by Alice Munro and Mavis Gallant
By Rebecca CALDWELL, Thursday, June 16, 2005, Page S11
Canada made writer Norman LEVINE; a cool reception in Canadian publishing made him leave the country. Now, the next generation's writers are rediscovering his work.
A gifted novelist and a poet, Mr. LEVINE was best known in writing circles for his short stories. His 10 collections are often referred to with the same reverence as work by Alice Munro or Mavis Gallant.
"He was a writer's writer," said Toronto-based Newfoundlander Michael WINTER, the author of The Big Why, who met him in 1993 when Mr. LEVINE was in Saint John's for a reading. The two kept up a regular correspondence. On Monday, Mr. WINTER received a letter from Mr. LEVINE thanking him for an article about his passion for Mr. LEVINE's work that appeared in Brick magazine, the Canadian literary journal. Mr. WINTER counts Mr. LEVINE's sophisticated, sparse modernism in collections such as Thin Ice (1979) as a direct influence on his writing.
"He had a strange relationship with [his] Canadian audience," said Mr. WINTER. " His style is not one that appeals to a lot of people, but a lot of writers marvel at his talent.... His economy of so little saying so much -- when you try to write like that, you realize how hard it is to capture things accurately and truthfully with very few words."
Mr. LEVINE is, however, best known to the public for his controversial 1958 travelogue-social critique Canada Made Me, based on research from a three-month cross-country journey in 1956. The work was not complimentary to a country then stumbling awkwardly toward its cultural and national adolescence.
"I wondered why I felt so bitter about Canada," he wrote in Canada Made Me. "It was foolish to believe that you can take the throwouts, the rejects, the human kickabouts from Europe and tell them: Here is your second chance. Here you can start a new life. But no one ever mentioned the price you had to pay, and how much of yourself you have to betray."
Although it had been commissioned by Putnam and Sons in Britain and by McClelland and Stewart in Canada, M&S publisher Jack McClelland was so aghast at the manuscript that he would print only 500 copies to honour the contract. Canada Made Me would not have a major Canadian release until 1979.
"It was a very unboosterish book that did him in with all the powers that were in Canada," said John METCALF, a friend of Mr. LEVINE as well as his later editor at the Porcupine's Quill, which republished several volumes by Mr. LEVINE, including Canada Made Me in 1993.
"Norman realized that Canadian publishing was closed to him, so he went to England." He lived there for the next 30 years, "where he wrote amazingly inventive short stories and he was heralded as a genius all over England and Europe." In Canada, however, nobody took any notice whatsoever, said Mr. METCALF.
"In part, it was because of the very fact that he had chosen to go away, but also [because of] the rise of Canadian nationalism as a sort of all-consuming force in intellectual and cultural matters in the country. It basically declared both Norman and Mavis GALLANT as traitors to the country. Norman paid the price."
Born to Orthodox Jewish parents in Ottawa in 1923, Mr. LEVINE was raised in the city's predominantly Jewish neighbourhood of Lower Town. He served in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a tail gunner during the Second World War, returning to Canada to study English literature at McGill University. After earning his B.A. and M.A., he won a scholarship to King's College, London, to pursue his PhD on the works of Proust and T.S. Eliot.
Mr. LEVINE had married Englishwoman Margaret PAYNE in 1952, and the two settled in St. Ives, where they would raise three daughters and befriend the burgeoning artistic community -- including abstract expressionist painters such as Francis Bacon, Terry Frost and Patrick Heron. The new intellectual circle would have a profound impact on his work.
"He was around a great deal of technical talk all the time about technique, which he transferred from visual terms into terms of rhetoric, so he was absorbing the lessons of painters and ways of looking and forging his own style," said Mr. METCALF. "He was forging a style that was quite new, fragmentary and imagistic. He was stripping ruthlessly down to the bone, the language got cleaner and cleaner. He denied all the conventional expectations of rhythms."
Living in St. Ives, and not in London or Paris, also gave him a chance to cultivate his outsider's perspective, said Mr. METCALF another of his motivations for leaving Canada. "He'd made the decision to leave on cultural grounds, but also on the grounds that he was an outsider in every aspect of his personality: as a Jew, as a writer, he liked to be on the margins of things, looking in."
Regardless of his reputation within Canada, Mr. LEVINE's writing was treasured outside of the country, particularly in Germany, where Nobel laureate Heinrich Boll worked on translations of Mr. LEVINE's stories for German editions.
Apart from a brief return to Toronto in the early eighties, and some time in France with his second wife Anne SARGINSON, from whom he later separated (Margaret PAYNE died of cancer in 1978,) Mr. LEVINE he made his life in Britain. However, he never forgot the country of his birth, and the country was apparently beginning to remember him. In 2002, he was named the winner of the Writers Trust of Canada Matt Cohen Award, only the second recipient of the prestigious lifetime achievement award. His last book, The Ability to Forget, was published in 2003.
"It was odd that having lived in Britain for 50 years, he still considered himself very much a Canadian. Canada was his world. I think he found it very difficult that he wasn't accepted, but he understood why," said his daughter Cassie FLINT, a high-school English teacher who lived near her father in Barnard Castle, Country Durham.
"He was thrilled by talk from Canadian publishers interested in reissuing his books," she said.
His death came as a shock, said Ms. FLINT. Although he had been seeing a consultant for some heart problems and suffered from blackouts for the past 18 months, he was quite fit and active, and was even at work on another short story.
Norman LEVINE was born in Ottawa on October 22, 1923. He died in County Durham, England, on Tuesday of a suspected heart attack following a fall. He was 81.

Gus CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER, Sergeant-At-Arms (1935-2005)
The House of Commons' longest-serving sergeant-at-arms presented the image of a man one would not wisely cross. He ran Parliament Hill as a 'private fiefdom'
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, September 3, 2005, Page S7
Gus CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER paraded daily into the House of Commons with a military bearing befitting a retired major-general. As sergeant-at-arms, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER handled responsibilities ranging from security to the allotment of parking slots. His duties that gave him much control over the day-to-day lives of members of Parliament, a power exercised out of public sight.
More conspicuous was Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER's role in leading the parades that open and close a day's sitting. In preceding the Speaker on entering and leaving the House, the sergeant-at-arms carries the ceremonial mace, a symbol of authority.
Dressed in a black court coat and a tricorne hat, the mace gripped by his right hand as it rested on his right shoulder, a ceremonial sword carried at his left hip, with service ribbons on his breast adding a dash of colour, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER presented the image of a man one would not wisely cross. For all that, his long tenure as sergeant-at-arms coincided with a breakdown in traditional parliamentary behaviour. On two occasions, members grabbed the mace, a shocking breach of decorum considered a gross contempt of Parliament.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was the longest-serving sergeant-at-arms since Confederation. His 27-year tenure surpassed that of the other seven men to have held the position.
A long climb through the ranks of the armed forces prepared him well for doing battle with civilians, as Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER proved a wily adversary in bureaucratic squabbles.
Born in Drummondville, Quebec, Maurice Gaston CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was educated at Mount Allison University at Sackville, New Brunswick, and, later, at the University of Liege in Belgium. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1952 while still a teenager, and married Joan CAHILL of Summerside, Prince Edward Island, before he was 20.
Serving as a navigator with Maritime Air Command, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER became an air instructor at the Air Navigation School at Winnipeg in 1960. He was appointed resident staff officer at Laval University at Quebec City two years later.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER relocated to Europe in 1964, serving as protocol chief for the armed forces. He was also appointed executive assistant to the commander of the Royal Canadian Air Force air division. After graduating from the Canadian Forces staff college in 1969, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was named bilingual policy adviser to the personnel chief. He was promoted to the rank of major-general in 1975.
He became executive assistant to Liberal defence minister Donald MacDONALD in 1970, remaining in the post under Edgar BENSON, C.M. (Bud) DRURY, James RICHARDSON and Barnett (Barney) DANSON.
The retired general was appointed sergeant-at-arms on April 27, 1978, by Pierre TRUDEAU, the first of seven prime ministers for whose security on Parliament Hill he was responsible. Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER succeeded David CURRIE, a decorated war hero awarded the Victoria Cross who had been sergeant-at-arms for 18 years.
As the official Commons guard, the sergeant-at-arms places the mace on a table before the Speaker. He then sits patiently throughout proceedings adjacent to the entrance to the House. The role of sergeant-at-arms carries with it a centuries-old responsibility for security, hence the mace and sword.
Yet, one of Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER's first public statements regarded the diminished size of the Christmas tree installed in the lobby of the House. Several controversies generated headlines in his first years. A stern report from the auditor-general was highly critical of Parliament's administration, noting an annual $3.5-million deficit from restaurants and cafeterias.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was soon embroiled in a public squabble over spending with Speaker Jeanne SAUVÉ. Without her knowledge, he had ordered $10,000 of riot gear, including vests, helmets, handcuffs and 12-gauge shotguns. He had also neglected to inform her of the creation of a new restaurant to address overcrowding in Parliament's main dining room. Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER opened an elegant, 70-seat restaurant for senior bureaucrats in the South Block in 1980. The first-class restaurant served $2.75 gourmet meals, a bargain for top mandarins as each meal served cost $12 in subsidies.
The Speaker called the restaurant scandalous, ordered it closed (after having allowed it at first to remain open), and issued a public rebuke of the sergeant-at-arms' spending habits.
An attempt soon after to end wasteful spending left Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER with egg on his face. A special Commons-Senate committee decided laying off 30 cafeteria workers would save money. But members of Parliament and bureaucrats proved sadly incapable of tidying up after themselves, and the federal health department sent a letter of reprimand to the sergeant-at-arms insisting the unhygienic practice not continue.
Over the years, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER has also had to sweep offices for bugging devices, and ordered walls rebuilt to prevent eavesdropping among rival caucuses and research staffs.
Two incidents in 2002 raised questions about security in the wake of the previous year's attacks on New York and Washington. A protester crashed the official unveiling of former prime minister Brian Mulroney's portrait. Two weeks later, a man left a grenade at the front desk of the Langevin Block, across the street from Parliament Hill and outside of the sergeant-at-arms' jurisdiction.
At the adjournment of the House on October 30, 1991, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER shouldered the mace when rushed by an member of Parliament. Angered by a ruling by the deputy speaker, New Democrat Ian WADDELL tried to grab the mace from the sergeant-at-arms.
An apologetic Mr. WADDELL was called to stand at the bar of the House the next afternoon, where he was reprimanded for a breach of privilege and gross contempt of the House.
In 2002, member of Parliament Keith MARTIN, then with the Canadian Alliance, touched the mace in protest the loss off his private member's bill on marijuana decriminalization. He was censured by the House.
In 2002, all five parties in the House paid tribute to Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER for his 50 years of public service. (By coincidence, the honour came 11 years to the day after the WADDELL incident.) The unanimity among the speakers led Progressive Conservative leader Joe CLARK to quip: "Mr. Speaker, it is a good thing there are only five parties in the House or these tributes could cause an outbreak of order."
Earlier that month, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER co-ordinated the royal visit to Canada as the Canadian Secretary to the Queen. He became the longest-serving sergeant-at-arms since Confederation last year, surpassing the 26-year tenure of Henry Robert SMITH (1892-1917.)
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER took his responsibilities most seriously. In December, 1995, a Liberal member of Parliament in a Santa Claus costume and accompanied by an elf arrived on the floor of the House to spread bonhomie. Hansard reporters captured the interruption in typically understated fashion, inserting a note in the account of daily proceedings. It read: "Editor's note: Whereupon a visitor in red entered the Chamber."
The sergeant-at-arms, perhaps not fully appreciating the spirit of the season, gave the bum's rush to Santa, ushering Stan DROMISKY off the floor.
Gus CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was born on June 6, 1935, at Drummondville, Quebec He died of colon cancer on Tuesday at the Elizabeth Bruyere Health Centre at Ottawa. He was 70. He is survived by his partner, Mary-Lynn GALLANT. He also leaves son Michael, and daughter, Nancy, as well as their mother, Joan, from whom he was separated.
