critical. Tunisian writers and prose writers returned to Tunisia with “the death of seven daring and a poet present”, opened the “voice” and initiated the revolution.
C’Is the third novel by a Tunisian writer, second only to A woman without writing (Threshold, 2017) and I was born eight times (Threshold, 2013). Eight, they are his new novels. 7 + 1. Seven deaths, and a surviving poet. In the horizontal direction is a ridden number of infinite symbols. Eternal return also. Of course it is memories and memories.
Tunisia: Revolution’s faded jasmine
We are the source of dawn in January 2011. A week after Ben Ali flew to Saudi Arabia poorly. Faced with the people’s courts and political institutions, there are eight defendants. Three sisters and five brothers. Introduce journalists who committed the great mistakes of this century, devout businessmen, future politicians from afar, historians from Groix, doctors who do not want to treat famous Tunisian figures and lawyers who have lost all their energy for political trials, Sitting poet, the man perched on the green hill. They must admit their main prank: the coup.
The novel begins at 8 pm on May 26, 2026 in chronological order. Fifteen years ago, these eight people appeared, seven of them were sentenced to death and one of them escaped. What do they have in common is fees? Reflect in your own life “the epic of a family whose grace is to establish one’s respect for the people. This is the first principle of the people’s government.”
Driven by the desire for justice, they proclaimed Western autonomy in order to establish a republic based on equality and self-esteem. The region has always been provided with wheat and human wealth by the country, but has been abandoned by its own power. The ideals of recognition and self-government were subsequently realized in the republic of origin of the Orbism. But the New Republic will only last for three days, and the National Guard will disembark to end the sedition. According to the author, in a northwestern region facing the rebellion and tenacity of the northeast, it is wise and favored that there are as many utopias as fables here. At the source of Aube, facing high-level compensation agencies, the eight siblings defended their cause and supported their defense.
They will be awarded “twenty hours of speaking time, one hour of eating and drinking, and three hours of sleep.” Everyone will deploy pro-defense appeals, not to save their own skin or leftovers, but to tell Tunisia: Tunisian defense before the revolution in December 2011. Their defense is a forged trajectory against a clear destiny, society, gender or politics. These characters are trapped in certain nets, but they tell them how to manage to get rid of this tracking fate, as well as the fate of themselves and their country. Because there is only common and shared liberation.
In “A Day of Compensation for the Sins of the Past”, the poet returns to the trial and the suit. He escaped by drawing lots. After years of accusations and investigations, he made a reply to the defense. The poet rewritten these words into words, respecting the breath of each deceased. He will work hard to free the “seven daring deaths” from condemned oblivion. He called them and called them in turn as a testimony of their own lives. Then provide the power of the story as a possibility of salvation, justification and compensation.
From the perspective of time, the era of this novel is very near. A country, its shortcomings and hopes say that this unresolved position makes the incident a reality. It covers multiple narratives, multiple geographic and temporal regions. He depicts the portrait of the entire country in the form of hollow concentric circles, which in turn widen and then shrink.
The scenic device placed in this way enables the novel to occupy its geographic and temporal scope. The novel takes Tunisia as the center and re-examines the Mediterranean. France appeared here, the historian went to Brittany, where Bourguiba was placed under house arrest on Naples. During the Second World War, the French suburbs also collided. Libya is also a “stubborn country.” In other words, Algeria is the same as the current war of liberation. In the narrative whirlwind, seeing the novel traversed by Gaddafi’s anger and following the fate of a can of ketchup will turn the truth-loving philosopher into an adviser to the leader of Libya.
Tunisia: Is it a new revolutionary style?
A reporter also appeared, and he rejected the “offer” of Carthage Caesar’s greedy wife to join his communication and propaganda services. She will burn her wings there. There is also a lawyer here who has dedicated her life to defending leftists and “harmless Islamists” and also knows how to deploy her defense. And, like a historian, he traced the little-known Brittany episodes of Bourguiba’s life. A mysterious character also makes up his story. He sits on the top of the Blue Mountains, just like the “old man on the mountain” Hassan ibn al-Sabbah (Hassan ibn al-Sabbah). He is not the master of the Tunisian Assassins, but the one who presided over the birth of the Autonomous Republic.
Two characters attract special attention. The first is the female doctor. Driven by the desire to treat and help, she is brilliant and splendid, and she is here to complement the golden youth of Tunisia. People who shuttle between the blue and white facades of La Marsa, the green alleys of Carthage, fashionable clubs and bustling nights. She also found that the value of the career path and work is due to alliances, protection, interpersonal skills and the protection of the extended family. These large families provided spoiled offspring and political support for the regime. Rejecting offers, corruption, traps, she will return to the mountain and become an itinerant doctor.
