Mongo Beti, l'homme des ruptures


A major literary figure, Mongo Beti remains, despite everything, one ignored author. However, his work, important as much by the length of time it covers (1953-2000) as by the amount of publications, is still too often denatured, even caricatured. It will act therefore, within the framework of this article, to trace the path of this writer and to give an account of his aesthetic and ideological standpoint. This analysis of his work includes the novels as well as prose and marks the key periods of his literary career.
