Présence Francophone: Revue internationale de langue et de littérature


This article is a study of the dialogue that is maintained between the novel « La femme qui pleure » by Assia Djebar and the Picasso painting that bears the same title. This article also aims to show author’s achievement of the liberation of the feminine subject through an aesthetic means, in other words, through an angle that allows for an encounter between that which has been written and the painting, which combined give the women the right to the word and the image portrayed. The form and the structure that are shared between the novel and the painting appear to make this undertaking easier, and furthermore, allow for an interesting way in which reflection can be encouraged to establish a relationship between the fields of literature and art.
