"Romanica Silesiana" Nr 1 (2018), s. 42–51.
Algerian novelists of the 1990s, including Assia Djebar and Leïla Marouane, often
devote their work to the plight of women, i.e. the victims of “the dark decade” fundamentalism
with terrorism ravaging the country. Their testimony, transposed and sublimated by poetic art,
makes it possible to describe the atrocities of war and is an inestimable homage to all those who
have fallen in combat. The analysis of their narratives allows the author to describe what Charles
Bonn calls the “everyday horror” of Algerian women.
