Narrating Transformations in Selected African Novels

By Gilbert Shang Ndi

In this remarkably meticulous work, Gilbert Shang Ndi succeeds in bringing together the aesthetic and political dimensions of the texts and in broadening interpretative perspectives in very convincing analyses. Each author is handled in his peculiarity and the theoretical ambitions of the project contribute to fruitful and innovative readings of major African literature texts by Ngugi wa Thiong'o, Ahmadou Kourouma, Ayi Kwei Armah and Sony Labou Tansi. --Prof. Xavier Garnier, U. de Paris-Sorbonne III **This title is based on a Dissertation.
