Abstract EN

This study will look at the ways short story as genre is favourable for EFL literature classroom at the Algerian university, most importantly at the age of self-exile phenomenon.

Through James Joyce's short story Araby, the study will undertake a literary analysis at the macro and micro levels.

At the macro level, the researcher chooses Genette's narratological approach to analyse the self-exile/displacement experience.

At the micro level, the researcher undertakes the figurative, thematic, and axiological oppositional structures suggested by Greimas in his semiotic approach to discuss reality/illusion, home/self-exile, and sight/ blindness generative oppositions.

Findings show that the narration scheme and the semiotic structure of the text contribute to set a mood for the story that makes it promotable in an EFL atmosphere.
