Images de la femme contemporaine au miroir des œuvres de Zoya Pirzad et Katherine Pancol

Abstract : At the crossroads of literature, sociology and psychology, this interdisciplinary work is intended to analyzing (analyze) the condition of contemporary women through a corpus of Persian and French works written respectively by Zoya Pirzad and Katherine Pancol and published between the years 1990 and 2010.These works, by their wide readership, are in popular literature. An analytical approach on the evolution of the novelistic genre, can define our corpus in relation to the new forms of sentimental literature, especially the Chick lit.The emergence of women novelists illustrating particularly the feminine universe requires studies on women’s writing.In this regard, Virginia Woolf insists on the importance of personal experiences in the creation of literary works, Luce Irigary identifies a language full of excess, folly and contradiction among women authors and Elaine Showalter proposes the construction of a framework (of a female executive) to analyze the literature of women.Subsequently, the question of feminism and its various currents in the West and the East explicitly developed. To approve the famous phrase of Simone de Beauvoir "One is not born a women, one becomes one", this work seeks to highlight the direct and indirect influence of the family, the school and the environment on training of the identity of the individual.Finally, by a psychological approach, this research promises a silent renaissance by examining the mental state of the female characters. The mother-daughter or father-daughter relationship and sexuality are major axes of this last part.
