(p.53) Chapter 2 Mouloud Feraoun: Life Story, Life-Writing, History
Autobiography and Independence
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the work of Mouloud Feraoun, covering Le Fils du pauvre (1950) and his published letters and diaries, which have received less critical attention. The aim is to follow the construction of a life story through expression in different narrative forms. Feraoun is also an important starting point because his life story bears witness not only to a childhood and youth spent under French colonisation, but also to the events leading to independence in Algeria, which stand at one extreme of the experience of colonisation in the Francophone world.
