[This article examines the effects of 9/11 on Québécois literature. A close analysis of the novels Les moines dans la tour by Roch Carrier and Compter jusqu'à cent by Mélanie Gélinas demonstrates how the catastrophe in New York caused both authors to call into question their sense of "Americanness" as well as the role of writing in a post-9/11 environment. The creative process is ultimately seen as a means of overcoming personal and collective trauma and a tool for renegotiating the concepts of individual and national identity. ﺗﺘﻨﺎﻭﻝ ﻫﺬﻩ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺎﻟﺔ ﺁﺛﺎﺭ ﺃﺣﺪﺍﺙ١١ ﺳﺒﺘﻤﺒﺮ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺍﻷﺩﺏ ﺍﻟﻜﻨﺪﻱ ﺍﻟﻤﻜﺘﻮﺏ ﻓﻲ ﺍﻟﻜﻴﺒﻴﻚ. ﻭﺗﻘﺪﻡ ﺍﻟﻜﺎﺗﺒﺔ ﺗﺤﻠﻴﻼﹰ ﻣﺘﻌﻤﻘﺎﹰ ﻟﺮﻭﺍﻳﺘﻲ ﺍﻟﺮﻫﺒﺎﻥ ﻓﻲ ﺍﻟﺒﺮﺝ ﻟﺮﻭﺵ ﻛﺎﺭﻳﻴﺔ ﻭﺍﻟﻌﺪ ﺣﺘﻰ ﺍﻟﻤﺌﺔ ﻟﻤﻴﻼﻧﻲ ﺟﺎﻟﻴﻨﺎ، ﻣﻮﺿﺤﺔ ﻛﻴﻒ ﺩﻓﻌﺖ ﻓﺠﻴﻌﺔ ﻧﻴﻮﻳﻮﺭﻙ ﺍﻟﻜﺎﺗﺒﻴﻦ ﻹﻋﺎﺩﺓ ﺗﺤﻠﻴﻞ ﻫﻮﻳﺘﻬﻤﺎ ﺍﻷﻣﺮﻳﻜﻴﺔ ﻭﺩﻭﺭ ﺍﻟﻜﺘﺎﺑﺔ ﻓﻲ ﺳﻴﺎﻕ ﻣﺎ ﺑﻌﺪ ١١ ﺳﺒﺘﻤﺒﺮ. ﻭﺗﻮﺿﺢ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺎﻟﺔ ﺃﻥ ﺍﻟﻜﺘﺎﺑﺔ ﺍﻹﺑﺪﺍﻋﻴﺔ ﻫﻲ ﻓﻲ ﻧﻬﺎﻳﺔ ﺍﻟﻤﻄﺎﻑ ﻭﺳﻴﻠﺔ ﻟﺘﺨﻄﻲ ﺍﻟﻔﺠﻴﻌﺔ ﺍﻟﺸﺨﺼﻴﺔ ﻭﺍﻟﺠﻤﻌﻴﺔ ﻭﺃﺩﺍﺓ ﻹﻋﺎﺩﺓ ﺗﻌﺮﻳﻒ ﻣﻔﻬﻮﻡ ﺍﻟﻬﻮﻳﺔ ﺍﻟﻔﺮﺩﻳﺔ ﻭﺍﻟﻘﻮﻣﻴﺔ .]
