Discours féminin ou féministe ? : eune étude des oeuvres sélectionnées de Flora Nwapa et de Buchi Emecheta

Abstract : This study examines the nature of the discourse to be found in the novels of Flora Nwapa and Buchi Emecheta, two Nigerian writers. On reading Nwapa's One Is Enough and Woman Are Different and Emecheta's The Joys of Motherhood and Second Class Citizen, we find that they do, indeed, convey an implicit message and that they show the black African woman subject to rather oppressive daily circumstances. By placing these novels within their African socio-cultural and literary contexts and by analysing the rhetorical and narratological tools used by these women writers, a specific identity can be given to the feminist claims of their novels. Finally, the possible existence of a specifically feminine writing in Nwapa and Emecheta's novels is discussed in the light of Hélène Cixous' theory of "écriture féminine".
