Synthesizing my analysis in terms of the narrative development within the novels, I discuss the consequences of the conflictual male-female dynamic on the male in particular. I argue that while the novels denounce the subordination/victimization of the female, Ben Jelloun's male protagonist also endures suffering and misery as a result of disharmonious male-female relations. I finally discuss the optimism that I surmise emerges in the conclusions of these two novels
