Violences et écriture dans l'oeuvre de Leila Marouane, la méditerranéenne des deux rives

Abstract : How does the writing, for the french – algerian autor, signify for having recourse to weapons ?First of all, my dissertation deals with a contextual, historical and sociological analysis of Leila Marouane’s novels before analyzing the relationship between violence and writing in the postcolonial context.My thesis is about, showing the relationship between the history of Algeria and French language postcolonial literature, and how the novelist reappropriates this history both by the writing of the violence she suffered and by the writing of the overthrow of violence.How does the necessity of writing have a link with violence? What are the stylistic and narrative manifestations? We chose to put the word “violence” in plural forms in our title, because it is polymorphic and multifactorial. In addition to the fact no thesis has yet been entirely devoted to the works of Leila Marouane, the manifestations of recurring female violence were relevant to understand. First, the heroines seem to be victims, then they become criminals, and this is what we can notice in this corpus: testify to the putting in words of phenomenon of reversal of the violence. Through a raw and cynical language that is symptomatic of a resumption of power, the novelist denounces traumas, the confiscation of identity and feminity, religious obscurantism and the weight of tradition, but she also says the need to strive always towards an “elsewhere”, geographical or fantasized.
