The Little Peul

by Mariama Barry, release date 2010, The Little Peul Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Little Peul books, Barry's first autobiographical novel, La Petite Peule (2000) is the story of an early Peul childhood, spent in Senegal. The Peul are a primarily nomadic people of western Africa. The book opens with a description of the violence and trauma of a young girl's excision at age six. After a younger brother is almost killed by a truck, the family moves to La Medina, a Dakar neighborhood where rats gnaw on children's toes at night and where children must struggle with adults in order to fetch water or use the communal toilet. Attending school is the one high point in "the little Peul's" life, but even there she must stand up to older bullies. During an unexpected hospitalization, the nuns recognize Peul's talent and suggest that she go to appear on a radio program where children recite poetry. Peul takes the suggestion and goes to the radio station without Mama's permission. Neighborhood fame saves her from maternal retribution. Family life is completely upset when Mama takes the youngest child and walks out abruptly, leaving leaving Peul to clean, cook, and care for her younger brothers. Unable to cope with five children and failing business as a neighborhood vendor, Papa withdraws Peul from school and takes the family to his mother's village in mountainous northern Guinea. Peul reacts against the idea that women should accept suffering and subjugation to men. At a tender age, she experiences great indignation that children have no rights and that parents lie to or desert their own children. She is determined to direct her own life and assert her right to do so.

Download Routledge Handbook Of Minority Discourses In African Literature books, This handbook provides a critical overview of literature dealing with groups of people or regions that suffer marginalization within Africa.

Chapters and sections of the book are structured to identify major areas of minority articulation of their condition and strategies deployed against the repression, persecution, oppression, suppression, domination, and tyranny of the majority or dominant group. Bringing together diverse perspectives to give a holistic representation of the African reality, this handbook is an important read for scholars and students of comparative and postcolonial literature and African studies.

The Eastern Sudanic Languages

by A. N. Tucker, release date 2017-09-22, The Eastern Sudanic Languages Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Eastern Sudanic Languages books, Originally published in 1940 this book focusses on the three main groups of Eastern Sudanic languages, namely Moru-Madi, Bong-Baka-Bagirmi and Ndogo-Sere. The term 'Eastern Sudanic Languages' is used here primarily in a geographical sense: the dialects in the Southern Sudan form the eastern boundary of sudanic speech, where it borders on the Nilotic wedge which, in turn divides it from Hamitic speech. Despite being described because of their geographical position, the languages discussed in this book will be grouped linguistically under the names of their best known representative dialects. As well as providing some history of the Eastern Sudanic tribes, this book also contains sections on vocabulary and grammar.

Far From My Father

by Véronique Tadjo, release date 2014-04-07, Far From My Father Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Far From My Father books, "To attain some sort of universal value," Véronique Tadjo has said, "a piece of work has to go deep into the particular in order to reveal our shared humanity." In Far from My Father, the latest novel from this internationally acclaimed author, a woman returns to the Côte d'Ivoire after her father’s death. She confronts not only unresolved family issues that she had left behind but also questions about her own identity that arise amidst the tensions between traditional and modern worlds. The drama that unfolds tells us much about the evolving role of women, the legacy of polygamy, and the economic challenges of daily life in Abidjan. On a more autobiographical level, the author depicts a daughter’s efforts to come to terms with what she knew and did not know about her father. Set against the backdrop of civil strife that has wracked the Côte d'Ivoire since the turn of the century, this story shows Tadjo’s remarkable ability to inhabit a character’s inner world and emotional landscape while creating a narrative of great historic and cultural dimensions.

Contemporary Francophone African Writers And The Burden Of Commitment

by Odile Cazenave, release date 2011-02-02, Contemporary Francophone African Writers And The Burden Of Commitment Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Contemporary Francophone African Writers And The Burden Of Commitment books, By looking at engagée literature from the recent past, when the francophone African writer was implicitly seen as imparted with a mission, to the present, when such authors usually aspire to be acknowledged primarily for their work as writers, Contemporary Francophone African Writers and the Burden of Commitment addresses the currrent processes of canonization in contemporary francophone African literature. Odile Cazenave and Patricia Célérier argue that aesthetic as well as political issues are now at the forefront of debates about the African literary canon, as writers and critics increasingly acknowledge the ideology of form. Working across genres but focusing on the novel, the authors take up the question of renewed forms of commitment in this literature. Their selected writers range from Mongo Beti, Ousmane Sembène, and Aminata Sow Fall to Boubacar Boris Diop, Véronique Tadjo, Alain Mabanckou, and Léonora Miano, among others.
