Abstract:My thesis centers on the concept of space in the Lebanese Francophone Novel (1942-2000). The introduction begins with an analysis of the concept of space from Albert Einstein to Georges Perec. I then examine the concept of space in Francophone Lebanese texts written in French, introducing the works of three authors: Farjalla Haïk, Andrée Chedid, Amin Malouf. All the texts I examine are situated in Lebanon. I use as a theoretical framework the spatial analysis of Denis Bertrand in order to foreground the concept of binary opposition: 'inside' vs. 'outside.' The first chapter deals with Farjalla Haïk's texts published before the Lebanese civil war: (Barjoute, La Crique, Joumana). In these texts, space is organized according to the dialectical concepts of the "haut" [highlands] or Lebanese mountain region (l'espace d'origine) and the "bas" [lowland] or city (l'espace de passage). The second chapter examines texts of Andrée Chedid (Le Message, La maison sans racines, L'Enfant multiple). Here, the principal space is the city and the concept of space is linked to immigration, war, and expatriation as Chedid depicts a nation torn by war, its people anguished by the decision to stay or leave their homeland. The third chapter which deals with Malouf's Le Rocher de Tanios , foregrounds the dichotomy interior/exterior as it refers to the castle. This dichotomy reflects Bertrand's spatial analysis of interior/exterior, a distinction that allows me to examine cultural, linguist and political spaces in the text. The conclusion of my thesis recapitulates my main points and shows that a spatial analysis of novels I have studied leads to a clear understanding of the importance and functions of space in the Lebanese Francophone novel, particularly binary opposition.
