Authors : Zerouali Karima .


The present paper explores, however, the representation of Algerian women in A Winter in Algeria in the light of Edward Said’s theory of Orientalism (1978) which describes the process of the construction of the Western representation of the Orient (a mere invention according to Said) aiming to dominate and control. The paper also sheds light on the standpoint from which the author constructs the image of the country she visits and more importantly the people she encounters.
