Francophone Literatures: An Introductory Survey

By Belinda Jack | Go to book overview

Fraternité de la parole ( 1976), Épreuves du vivant ( 1982). Simple in their language, her poems are concerned with both the small and large events of human existence, ranging, for example, from friendship to death.

The tragedy of the Lebanese war, but also the need for hope is evoked in the poetry of Élie Maakaroon's Terre qui brûle ( 1975) and Claire Gebeyli's La Mise à jour ( 1980) and Papier de guerre lisse ( 1981). Since the end of the troubles, the possibility of making the war central to writing has become evident. Amin Maalouf, recent winner ( 1993) of the Prix Goncourt, for his extraordinary novel Le Rocher de Tanios, explained in a lecture that the immediate horror of the troubles made it impossible for him to write about it, but now that relative calm has been established he is considering exploring various possibilities for a novel about the war. Clearly this is a feeling he shares with a number of Lebanese contemporaries in Paris, where he now lives, and in the Lebanon and elsewhere, most notably in North and South America.2
