Title: Conflit Des Cultures À Travers : Saison De La Migration Vers Le Nord Succession Ouverte La Traductrice Et Garçon Manqué
Author: Mohammed ,Nadra Abdalla Ali
Abstract: This study aims at depicting the cultural conflict represented by the Western one from one side and the African and Arabian one from the other side. We are going to analyse the situation of the protagonists as portrayed in the novels: “Season of migration to the north” by the Sudanese writer Al Tayeb Salih, “Open Succession” by the Moroccan writer, Driss Chraibi. “The translator” by the Sudanese writer Leila Aboulela and “Half Boy” by the Franco Algerian writer Nina Bouraoui. As for the protagonists of “Season of migration to the north” and “Open Succession” they were very attracted by the West, but they discovered how wrong they were about that, when they couldn’t integrate in that society. In vain they tried to get back to their original society, but they didn’t manage to settle there. Concerning the protagonist of the “Half Boy”, she suffers from an identical conflict, being a child of a French mother and an Algerian father made it too difficult for her to be considered as a real Algerian in Algeria or a whole French in France. Sammar, the protagonist of “the translator”, lived in Europe coming from Sudan without having the minimal feelings of being different from others. She believes that all people are equal that’s why she succeeded to create a kind of coexistence between those two cultures so she lived in harmony with herself and with others. Her profound understanding for Islam was her own support.
