ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the Moroccan novels in French. "Le Passé Simple" is the first novel in French written by a Moroccan writer, Driss Chraïbi. It is in more than one way the principal written expression of the encounter in which it pleased history to join France and the Maghreb, an ordeal defined by the violence of desire and the desire for violence. In choosing French, Algerians, Tunisians and Moroccans who wrote in this language, not only borrowed a language (that of the occupying nation); they also adopted a form of expression for which there was no real national tradition
