Francophone diaspora literature reveals unstable worlds. In facts, the metamorphosis of the self would be a reflection of a number of unconventional narrative forms: reflexive territories whose benchmarks would be, mainly, at the level of migratory movements. Such a broad subject could be partially identified on the basis of a definite corpus. Two authors draw attention to this: Assia Djebar and Mohammed Khaïr-Eddine. Their respective works, L'Amour la fantasia and Une Odeur de mantèque, lead the recipient to a rather intriguing journey insofar as memory, enunciation and temporality intersect with the fields of otherness and de-territoriality. By means of a comparative approach, we propose a modest illumination on these inner-self and outer-self problematized spaces. Weighing with all their strenght on postmodernity, they still resonate in the 21st century with the critical margins of the collective unconscious.
