Expatriate Algerian author Malika Mokeddem has modified literary genres throughout her fiction of the 20th and 21st centuries. For example, her second novel, Le siècle des sauterelles, combines elements of history and fantasy. This paper analyzes the ways in which the above novel containing fairy tale elements departs from strict fairy tale code. Les Mille et une nuits, and works by Perrault, Aulnoy, and Propp will provide the theoretical bases of my arguments.
