This introductory chapter sets out the book's purpose, which is to explore the question of the relationship between the writer's self and literary expression. The analysis focuses on the work of four North African writers: Mouloud Feraoun, Assia Djebar, Albert Memmi and Abdelkébir Khatibi. The writers share a complex relationship with language, since all of them write in French, a legacy of colonial intervention in those countries, but this relationship varies according to differences in ethnic identity, class and gender. The structure and organization of the present study are also described.

Keywords:   self, literary expression, Mouloud Feraoun, Assia Djebar, Albert Memmi, Abdelkébir Khatibi
