The Anonymous City Facing the Sea: From a Mirage to Miscegenation

Loubna Achheb

Abstract


Our current article talks about the geocritical analysis of the spaces of the anonymous city and the sea argued by the two Algerian authors: Mohamed Dib through his novel Cours sur la rive sauvage and Yasmina Khadra in L'Olympe des infortunes. These two writers highlight the binary dynamics of the anonymous city and the sea. The fusion of these two spaces creates mirages revealing the intermingling of their writings and their society. This textual hybridization reveals a harmful criticism of the metropolis and the era of globalization.

Keywords
