Individu et société dans le roman négro-africain d'expression anglaise de 1939 à 1986

Abstract : The thesis raises a series of philosophical, sociological, aesthetic & literary questions. it comprises six chapters, the first of which is like a preliminary explanation based on the time-space framework of African literature & highlighting elements of chronology, language, regionality, nationality & tribality. Chapter 2 opens up broad avenues of black Africa’s social history. Chapter 3 deals with purely documentary but also ideological aspects of a corpus covering a minimum of nearly 50 & a maximum of 120-odd titles of African novels written in English. The last 3 chapters are complementary to the first 3, just as form and content in social sciences are one. Chapter 4 therefore deals with forms as well as it accounts for data & conditions whereby the novel adapts itself to negro-African realities. chapter 5 revisits chapter 4 and places into proper perspective the issue of origins as it relates to the main influences that are brought to bear on the negro-African novel as a result of the 20th century aesthetic revolution, characterized primarily in Europe, but also in Africa, by a shift in the relationship of the individual man to the world towards the achievement of artistic completeness.
