Les urgences climatiques et les écrivains africains : changements de paradigmes ?

Abstract : This article focuses attention on the topic of African ecology in post-colonial literature, with the purpose of asserting Africans’ point of view on the concepts of nature and landscape. While the West represents Africa as a place of uncontaminated beauty and holds this representation of primitive nature, as it was for the first explorers in the past and is today for western ecologists as a good to preserve, African literature reveals a broader perspective which starts from the human being and its primary needs before focusing on its relation to nature.
