Nouvelles du Maroc( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A l'extrême ouest du Maghreb, tête de pont vers les Amériques, point de passage vers l'Europe par le détroit de Gibraltar, le Maroc est un carrefour d'influences unique au monde où se mélangent modernité et traditions. Son ancrage dans la civilisation arabo-musulmane est total et les splendeurs de son patrimoine sont restés intactes. Mais, ni plus ni moins que dans d'autres pays de la rive sud de la Méditerranée, le "printemps arabe", qui débuta avec le geste désespéré d'un jeune Tunisien, résonne ici aussi dans toutes les têtes. Si ces révolutions ont un visage, c'est celui de la jeunesse. Et avec le surgissement de cette brûlante soif de liberté, la liberté de penser et d'écrire s'est également manifestée, comme en attestent les textes pour certains très étonnants de ce recueil. Ils sont l'expression incontestable d'un moment historique, revendiqué par de jeunes écrivains, hommes et femmes, qui s'expriment haut et fort, parfois avec des mots crus, sur le sexe, la drogue, la religion, la violence politique, la situation des femmes : tout ce qui pouvait être tabou jusqu'ici. Ce recueil s'inscrit plus que jamais dans l'actualité et démontre que la littérature peut dire autrement le monde qui change. -- Back cover
