This article analyses the Boudjedrian portrait of two emblematic figures. The author puts in contrast two characters diverging from each other. On the one hand, the whims of a grandmother who, despite her dominant and repulsive presence, announces an extraordinary grandmother ; symbolizing traditional society taken hostage to sclerosed customs. On the other hand, the virtues of a dwarf remaining jovial and aerodynamic symbolizing both rebellion and freedom. Or, a configuration in contrast opposing two major formations of Algerian society.
