عنوان مقاله [English]
When French government was ruling against Algeria, the Algerian literature was a means of fighting against Colonialists. After the independence, the literature found another orientation: a large number of writers, searching a trace of the jumbled Algerian identity and trying to find an answer to the question of why violence still did not leave the country, got started to write; so many were killed, including Taher Djaout, journalist and writer whose second novel, The Bone Seekers (1984) focuses on the persistence of violence in the post-colonial age: Despite the withdrawal of the colonialism and the victory of the people in the independence wars, violence is ongoing and expanding. The present article, by analyzing Bone seekers, tries to study the novel as a combination genre and reminiscent of the forgotten and unwritten parts of history. This novel draws a society dominated by corruption, opportunism and hegemony of the violence that betrayed the aims for which people fought.
