The Le Loup Garou werewolf is a werewolf myth that comes from French Canadian folklore but it’s also widely known throughout Europe. Just like other werewolves, the Le Loup Garou werewolf was once a human before being turned into a werewolf. However, they were turned for a very specific reason. A human would be turned into a Le Loup Garou if he had failed to meet his religious Easterly duties for seven years in a row.; These sinning humans would usually be turned into wolf form. le loupgarou is about a man le brun who is ostricised by his community. He was once rich but it is said that his greed brought him down. The people in the town spreads rumors about him saying that one night he turned into a werewolf. In relation to the folklore, it could be said that this man was changed into a werewolf because of his ‘sins’ or in the poem; his greed. Literally, he could have been changed into a werewolf, but figuratively, the man’s personality could have been changed into a ‘wolf’. This is an allusion, as a sheep is a representative of a good person.
