Littérature gabonaise au féminin

Abstract : This thesis gives voice to gabonese women's novels according to the new criticism approaches on french-speaking african women's literature. The critics are agree to recognize that women literary production bring a new breath to african literature, because the female writers don't restrict themselves by developing autobiographical stories, but they treat marginal questions and they're concerned about today's problems in their society. In regard to these considerations, we wanted to assess by questionong the novels, the extent of newness so often praise by the critics. For that reason, we relied on some elements liable to express this change. Gabonese novelists illustrate the new tendency of women's literature by their free speaking and by developing a new vision round about woman's body, her sexuality, her motherhood, her freedom aspiration, her filial and matrimonial connections. But at the same time, their writing follow the african way of writing. This one doesn't yet offer - in spite of recourse to oral art and other african forms of language - interesting perspectives, on expression viewpoint, who can lead to an african esthetic renewal.
