Crise de la famille et autonomisation de l'individu chez Mahfouz et Mauriac

Abstract : This work analyzes the states of the family and their reports to the individual in two François Mauriac’s novels, Vioer’s tangle and Thérèse Desqueyroux as well as in the Trilogy of Naguib Mahfouz: Palace walk, Palace of desire and Sugar street.Through these two romantic universes, which approach the theme of the family on very particular circumstances, connected to the geography, in history and in the sociology of period, this work wishes to answer the following questions: what is the state of the family in these novels? What is the place granted to the individual? Families described in these novels favor the emergence of the individual as autonomous subject, capable of making personal choices even if it means that they are in countercurrent of the values.So the first part will analyze the state of the family in the trilogy of Mahfouz; as for second it will approach both novels of Mauriac. The third part will develop the comparison between both romantic universes by crossing and by confronting the factors which interfere in both family universes: the religion, the money and the heritage and the politics (at Mahfouz especially).
