Mohammed Dib, Tlemcen or Places of Writing

 

As I sat down at the meïda that served as my work table, on the patio protected from the sunlight’s bright triumph by the coolness of the azulejos, I was hardly aware that I was beginning a migration, setting off on a journey which, without yet taking me abroad, would lead me into an unknown land and, in that land, from discovery to discovery, and that the more I pushed ahead, and the more I wandered into new countries, the further I would travel, simultaneously but unknowingly, down the road leading to myself. Pathways of writing.

Born in Tlemcen, Algeria in 1920, Mohammed Dib is the author of more than 30 works, including numerous novels, volumes of poetry, story collections, essays and memoirs. He worked as a teacher, an accountant and an interpreter during WWII, and after the war as a journalist for Alger Républicain and Liberté. Expelled from Algeria by the colonial authorities in 1959, he moved to France, eventually settling in La Celle-Saint-Cloud. He lectured at the Sorbonne and at the University of California at Los Angeles. Dib was awarded several prizes, including the Grand prix de la Francophonie de l’Académie française, the Grand prix du Roman de la Ville de Paris, and the Prix Mallarmé. Dib died in 2003.

Guy Bennett’s translations include Jacques Roubaud’s Poetry, etc.: Cleaning House, Valère Novarina’s Adramelech’s Monologue, and Giovanna Sandri’s Hourglass: The Rhythm of Traces.
