Self-imagination/Add Imagination on Personal Experiences: Wacini Laredj’s Dakira El-Ma (Water’s Memory Model)

Hassina Laoudj


The autobiographical novel differs from the real autobiography since the latter relies on personal and real facts of the writing ego, and the writer is not allowed to say or talk of something that is not related to him. The writer includes his personal experience in the writing according to the conditions set by Philippe Lejeune. Whereas the autobiographical novel belongs to the novelistic genre in which the writer has recourse in the first place to the element of imagination in his artistic work, taking advantage of the factors and techniques which make his novel a higher artistic work since it provides aesthetics. The proof is that the autobiographical novel is given the term “Self-imagination” at present because of its propensity for imagination in describing real facts that the writer reports reality to others with his creative composition
