Résumé

This topic deals with the concept of the


historical novel as a literary genre with its


features and basics. Thus, it isessential to


focus on the concept and its foundation


which fuses two terms: novel and history in


a single narrative identity. The concept of


the historical novel refers to the text which


recalls the events of history and reproduce


them within the current time frame. The


objective of doing so is to deal with the


current events and therefore making a


liaison between the past and the present, in


which the author utilizes artistically the


historical material depending on the artistic


imagination and the human experience. In


doing so, the author makes use of the


artistic/literary devicesto produce a creative


text of an aesthetic function. The concept of


historical novel, with the Western and Arab


writers, has gone through many phases


during its evolution, which makes it a more


mature, artistic and developed literary genre


due to the efforts of its pioneering authors.
