    Abstract [en]

    Ibrāhīm al-Miṣrī (1900–79) was an Egyptian short-story writer, essayist, journalist, and dramaturge. His family, of Levantine origin, emigrated to Egypt before his birth. Al-Miṣrī was born in Cairo and grew up in modest circumstances. Obliged to abandon his studies and start working at an early age, he was a self-taught person who acquired wide knowledge from long hours of reading in libraries. He earned his living as a journalist until his death.

    Des despotes et des opprimés dans les romans de Ğamāl al-Ġītānī2014In: Arabica, ISSN 0570-5398, E-ISSN 1570-0585, Vol. 61, no 6, p. 664-696Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on the three following novels by Ǧamāl al-Ġīṭānī: al-Zaynī Barakāt (1971), Waqāʾiʿ ḥārat al-Zaʿfarānī (1976) and Ḥikāyat al-muʾassasa (1997). It aims to discuss the author’s handling of despotism and the popular revolt against it. The eventsin the three novels occur in different contexts: political, religious and economical. The first part of the article is a discussion of the formal aspects of the novels, namely theirstructure, their techniques of enunciation and other devices which show how the various themes of the novels are presented. The second part is an analysis of the portrayals of the despots and how they act, the basis on which the relation between the oppressor and the oppressed persons is built and the methods used by the despot to control the population. The third and last part is a study of the representation of the oppressed persons, their revolt against the power and the results which that revolt achieves.Finally, the conclusion of the article sheds light on the place of al-Ġīṭānī on the scene of Egyptian novel, and on the historical context in which his vision of despotism could be placed.

    Abstract [fr]

    Cet article aborde quelques aspects et fonctions concernant le début d’un corpus de romans arabes du XXe siècle, constitué en fonction de leur diversité technique et thématique. L’analyse des débuts est basée sur une approche à la fois discursive et narrative et prend en compte les aspects suivants : les trois codes figuratifs (espace, temps, personnage), le rapport du début avec l’ensemble de la structure narrative du récit, la manière dont le début annonce les idéologies sous-jacentes, le lien éventuel entre le début et la fin du récit, enfin, les répercussions de l’évolution chronologique du roman arabe sur le début de celui-ci.

    Le corps déchiré de l’Irak dans le roman al-Mašṭūr(2017) de Ḍiyāʾ Ǧbaylī2022In: Quaderni di studi arabi, ISSN 1121-2306, Vol. 17, p. 37-60Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is dedicated to the Iraqi novel al-Mašṭūr : Sitt ṭarāʾiq ġayr šarʿiyya li-iǧtiyāzal-ḥudūd naḥwa Baġdād (2017) by Ḍiyāʾ Ǧbaylī. Through an illegal journey of twocharacters in Iraq, this book presents a new literary approach of the sectarian conflictthat tears apart the country. Intertextuality with the Italian novel The Cloven Viscount(1952), by Italo Calvino, works as a connecting thread in the story. The complex Iraqiidentity and the conflicts that are related to it are depicted as the result of both thecountry’s geographical position and its history. The first part of the article focuses onthe spatial configuration in the story and the way the concept of borders is used todefine the Iraqi identity. The latter is also the object of the second part that attempts todiscuss the close relationship that the novel suggests between the body of the martyrand the homeland.

    Le déchirement identitaire entre ǧidd et hazl dans al-Mašṭūr (2017) de Ḍiyāʾ Ğbaylī2020In: Litterature et culture arabes contemporaines, ISSN 2270-7220, no 8, p. 31-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [fr]

    Dans ce roman qui propose une nouvelle approche de la violence sectaire en Irak, l’humour intervient en permanence pour contrebalancer le pessimisme de la réalité. Après une présentation des traces de la littérature classique dans le roman, l’analyse se focalise sur les thèmes et les procédés rhétoriques qui provoquent le rire. Elle montre que l’humour et son fonctionnement dans le récit sont employés dans une logique comparable à celle de ǧidd et hazl dans les ouvrages classiques d’adab.

    Techniques of Beginning in Arabic Novels after the 1960s: Thartharah fawq al-Nil by Najib Mahfuz2011In: From New Values to New Aesthetics: Turning Points in Modern Arabic Literature 1 / [ed] Gail Ramsay, Stephan Guth, Wiesbaden: Harrassowitz Verlag , 2011Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The beginning of Arabic novels of the first half of the 20th century, including those belonging to the so called “realism” trend, are charatcerized by certain traits concerning, among other things, the way they insert the  three elements : space, time, character into the text, the reality effect  they create, and the presence of the narrator as an addressor. With  the introduction of new writing techiniques after the 60's, these  trends changed gradually. From, for example,  introducing the the (space, time character) as a block and describing them in length , creating a realistic setting for the story , and having a discrete presence of the addressor, they have evolved into more diverse models where the three elements are spred ; the realistic impression loses its importance ; and the interpolations of the addressor into the text are more frequent. The present article aims, firstly, to present the major teatures of that evolution, and secondly, to show through a detailed analysis of the beginning of Thatrthara fawq al-Nil, 1966 by N. Mahfuz that this work, written in a pivotal moment of the history of the Arabic novel, includes already the beginnings of that evolution.

    The Living City of the Dead: Representation of Life in the Cemeteries in Two Egyptian Novels2020In: Arabica, ISSN 0570-5398, E-ISSN 1570-0585, Vol. 67, no 1, p. 82-116Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The City of the Dead is a large area on the periphery of Cairo where people live in house-like tombs. This study focuses on two Egyptian novels Sakawa 1-misri l-fasih (1981-1985) by Yusuf al-Qaid and Madad (2014) by Mahmud al-Wirwari, in which living in the cemeteries is portrayed as a paradoxical reality where life and death overlap. Limits between the two are blurred, and this creates a confusing situation where kind marks are lost and moral values are subverted. Tins situation echoes the characters' personal dilemmas and the uncertain historical context in winch they live. Tins article sheds light on the representation of life in the cemeteries and the concrete and symbolic function of tins space. It also discusses tins representation within the portrayal of peripheries and marginal spaces in contemporary Egyptian fiction, and explores the way the two novels published several decades apart use tins ambivalent: space to relate their respective historical realities.

    Three Arabic Novels Starting with a Crime2012In: Edebiyât A journal of Middle Eastern literatures, ISSN 1475-262X, E-ISSN 1475-2638, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 1-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study treats three Arabic novels which belong to different periods and use different narrative techniques. Yet they all start with the same theme: the discovery of a murder. Despite this apparent similarity in their beginnings, the murder plot develops in a different way in the three cases. Each beginning contains elements that announce the development of the story. The three beginnings serve the special purposes of their respective novels, in the way the murder is presented to the reader, in the elements each beginning tries to draw attention to, in the language used in this purpose, in the identity of the character who discovers the murder and even in the type of the murder itself. The three novels have, beside the murder plot, various thematic and ideological objectives which influence the way the novel starts and even overshadow, in some cases, the murder plot.

    Tout est déjà dans le début: Les débuts des romans arabes du XXeme siècle2010Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [fr]

    Cet ouvrage consiste en une étude détaillée des débuts d''un corpus de romans arabes du vingtième siècle, constitué en fonction de leur diversité technique et thématique. Il tente de répondre aux interrogations suivantes: Qu''est-ce qu''un début de roman? Quelles sont, sur le plan énonciatif, les "priorités" dans le début? Comment le début fonctionne-t-il par rapport à l''ensemble du récit? Les composantes principales de l''histoire y sont- elles annoncées et si oui, comment? Enfin, existe-t- il des aspects spécifiques aux débuts des romans arabes liés à la culture dont ils sont issus? L''auteur a, par ailleurs, adapté une approche à la fois discursive et narrative et pris en compte les aspects suivants: les trois codes figuratifs (espace, temps, personnage); le rapport du début avec l''ensemble de la structure narrative du récit; l''éventuel lien entre le début et la fin de celui- ci, enfin, la manière dont le début annonce les idéologies sous-jacentes. Cette démarche a, parallèlement, permis de dégager les convergences et les divergences entre les récits étudiés et d''y repérer une certaine évolution chronologique.

    Utopia/Dystopia through the Theme of Immigration in Two Arabic Short Stories2012In: Borders and Beyond: Crossings and Transitions in Modern Arabic Literature / [ed] Kerstin Eksell, Stephan Guth, Wiesbaden: Harrassowitz Verlag, 2012, p. 83-103Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents shortly the evolution of the concepts of Utopia and Dystopia in the Modern Arabic narrative literature. It focuses then on the Utopia/Dystopia related to the theme of immigration. The two short stories: Aknusu al-šams ʿan al-suṭūḥ (1994) by Ḥanān al-Šayḫ, and Bi-l-Ams Ḥalimtu Bika (1984) by Baha’ Tahir are chosen to underline several aspects of the Utopia/Dystopia of the immigrants life. Before leaving their homelands, they seem to have an Utopian image of the foreign country. After arriving there, this Utopian image disappears in the context of a negative reality: lonliness, racism, loss of landmarks.... At the same time, the Dystopia of the reality creates, itself, a new form of Utopia: the faraway homeland. Thus the process of immigration seems to start from the Utopian elsewhere and ends by the Utopian homeland.
