ABSTRACT
The article comments on literary writings, which explore human experience, based on reflections provided by writer Evelyne Accad. The author remarks that every experience lived at a particular age, is supposed to have marked one's future choices and reactions. The author relates that writing, for her, was an experience of total immersion into her inner world, where she would go deep into her feelings and moods to try and express the authentic understanding of her existence. She further adds that writing meant telling the world about the uniqueness of her experience, of being born an Arab woman, from a Swiss mother and an Egypto-Lebanese father, with a strict Protestant religious upbringing.
