LA SOIF DE ASSIA DJEBAR PDF

By Jane Hiddleston. Liverpool, Liverpool University Press, This thorough and concise study of the novels and short stories by famed Algerian writer Assia Djebar charts the evolution of her works from an early focus on the construction of Algerian identity in the s and s to an interest in developing a female Algerian identity-in-relation in the s and early s, to a final pessimism about the descent of Algeria into Islamist and state violence directed at intellectuals, women and the people between the mids and early s. Hiddleston's theoretical framework is heavily influenced by Peter Hallward's distinction which she redefines slightly between the singular and the specific and by Jean-Luc Nancy's concept of the singular-plural.

Her modernist novel reflects the psychological introspection that characterized most novels of the era. The introspection and internal monologues throughout the novel provide a means for the young, female protagonist to establish her subjectivity in an environment of rapid transformation.

Djebar captures the essence of an Algerian woman emerging into a new way of being. Her protagonist, Nadia, explores the principal, existential Sartrian question asked in novels by writers of French expression writing in the s: To what extent can an individual remain disconnected from the responsibility of taking action in societies that call on authors to construct the social conscious of their era?
