Assessment Of Algerian French Literature In The Twenty-first Century

Authors : Rahmani Mokhtaria .

Abstract

Literature is a mirror that reflects individual and collective frustration, strains, and anxiety. It vehicules also aspirations, desires, and visions, providing thereby hope, satisfaction, and liberation. By crystallysing their issues on paper, writers find themselves winners in battles against all dark spots in their society. By their rebelling stands, they may either realize self interests, or interests for the whole community. Algerian French literature falls within this scope as writers sought multi-faceted revolts against their socio-political orders for the sake of redressing both their individual and group interests. The present paper attempts the exploration of Algerian French literature in the twenty-first century with a view to assessing the inclinations of authors in this period, and synthetising the themes addressed. The survey takes into consideration five writers, notably Yasmina Khadra, Aziz Chouaki Amine Zaoui, Assia Djebar, and Malika Mokeddem. The findings reveal that Algerian novelists resorted to a rebelling form of writing in order to denunciate all evils in their society that hampered both individual and common welfare. Key words: literature, Algerian novelists, twenty-first century, welfare
