Writing French Algeria

Peter Dunwoodie

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the French influence on Algerian literature. It suggests that aesthetic production in/on the Algerian colony between the invasion of 1830 and the withdrawal of 1962 was significantly influenced by the French. It analyses the French discourse in/on Algeria within the context of the hegemonic discourse of Orientalism and explores how the French encounters with the colony were shaped by parameters popularized in France by writers like Pierre Loti and Theophile Gautier.

Keywords:   Algerian literature, France, French colony, Orientalism, Pierre Loti, Theophile Gautier
