Abstract: The primary aim of this study is to explore the complex interplay of color schemes and their manifestations in Azzedine Jalawji's novel, "Love by Night in the Presence of the False Messiah." This research seeks to uncover the deep semantic symbolisms woven into the text's structure, examining the nuanced capacity of its language to convey evocative meanings that captivate and invite us to decode its hidden codes. Furthermore, the study investigates the strategic use of color semiotics within the narrative, a move that frees it from traditional constraints and thrusts it into the dynamic sphere of aesthetic possibilities. Through this analysis, we endeavor to shed light on the sophisticated construction of cultural meanings tied to color, as intricately depicted within the narrative's framework. Keywords: Color, Aesthetics, Cultural Connotations, Novel Love by Night, Azzedine Jalawji
