About Mohammed Dib. Mohammed Dib. Algerian poet and novelist. Born in Tlemcen, Dib held various jobs as a teacher, accountant, weaver and rug designer, interpreter, and journalist before turning to full-time writing. In he moved to France, where he has continued to reside, although he returns regularly to Algeria. With the death of Kateb Yacine in , Dib became the undisputed doyen of Algerian literature. He was not only on Algerian poet and novelist. He was not only one of the first Maghrebian francophone authors of the post-World War II renaissance, publishing poems as early as , but also continued to be both prolific and innovative.
Unlike some of his contemporaries, Dib has constantly sought to renew and revitalize his writing. Besides being Algeria's foremost living novelist, he is a major poet.
In this work the main characters are, in Zolaesque fashion, subordinate to the looming allegorical presence of Hunger. His early novels have been widely read in Algeria and have been introduced into the school and university curricula. His best known novel, Qui se souvient de la mer , ostensibly deals with the Algerian War, but is particularly remarkable for its many-layered, surreal, and futuristic imagery.
In a liminary note, Dib acknowledges the importance to his creative vision of Picasso's Guernica and science fiction, but we also find evidence of the influence of Freud and Jung in the subterranean and oceanic worlds where the action unfolds as well as in the mythic portrayal of the woman and the mother.
Dib also published, at this time, the first of a series of brilliant collections of poetry. Ombre gardienne , although highly rarefied, provides an early link to the novels, for several of the texts in the collection first appeared as songs inserted into the trilogy. If the prose has evolved over the years, the poetry has, on the contrary, remained fairly consistent in style, perhaps because, as Dib once remarked, he is unable to practise spontaneous automatic writing in writing his novels—even when the result seems oneiric—whereas he often uses such procedures in composing the poems.
