Early on, he escapes his fathers angry blows by seeking asylum with his benefactor, the local European priest who meets an untimely death. Toundi then becomes the Chief Europeans boythe dog of the King. Toundis attempt to fulfill a dream of advancement and improvement opens his eyes to troubling realities.

‘Realism’ is a pervasive term in discussions of contemporary developments in the cultural sphere. By drawing on different theories of realism, the authors explore how the term may be used as a helpful concept in order to analyse and evaluate current trends in cultural production and, in turn, how cultural production changes our understanding of what counts as ‘realism’. The contributions deal with realism in narrative fiction, drama and audiovisual media (film, television news) within the context of national traditions: examples drawn on in the case studies range from Africa, Britain, Germany, Iceland, Russia, Turkey to the United States. While the authors take their cues from media-specific ‘realisms’, focusing especially on narrative fiction, the volume also highlights continuities and intersections between notions of realism in different genres and media. With its original essays, this collection invigorates the transdisciplinary engagement with forms and socio-political functions of realism in contemporary culture.

Under the pseudonym Eza Boto, Mongo Beti wrote Ville cruelle (Cruel City) in 1954 before he came to the world's attention with the publication of Le pauvre Christ de Bomba (The Poor Christ of Bomba). Cruel City tells the story of a young man's attempt to cope with capitalism and the rapid urbanization of his country. Banda, the protagonist, sets off to sell the year's cocoa harvest to earn the bride price for the woman he has chosen to wed. Due to a series of misfortunes, Banda loses both his crop and his bride to be. Making his way to the city, Banda is witness to a changing Africa, and as his journey progresses, the novel mirrors these changes in its style and language. Published here with the author's essay "Romancing Africa," the novel signifies a pivotal moment in African literature, a deliberate challenge to colonialism, and a new kind of African writing.

La littérature africaine en langues européennes est confrontée, depuis ses origines, à une masse de textes issus de la littérature coloniale d'une grande variété tant par les genres et la thématique que par le talent de leurs auteurs. L'évolution de la littérature africaine peut être décrite comme processus de positionnement et d'émancipation face à cette vaste " bibliothèque coloniale ". Nous ne voulons pas nier l'influence des langues et cultures africaines indigènes respectives sur les littératures europhones naissantes. Mais elles sont spécifiques et se rapportent à la langue/culture d'origine de chaque auteur ou groupe d'auteurs, tandis que les clivages par rapport aux littératures européennes parlant de l'Afrique sont communs à des auteurs venant de langues et cultures différentes. Situer les littératures africaines en langues européennes par rapport aux littératures européennes de l'époque coloniale et post coloniale, c'est souligner leur unité : " On se pose en s'opposant ", selon la célèbre formule de Sartre. La langue du colonisateur, enseignée à l'école (ou à l'église ou à l'armée) et intériorisée par des procédés tels que la " récitation " ou la mémorisation, transporte avec elle des conceptions multiformes allant d'une imagerie à un répertoire de savoir populaire, incrusté dans des locutions figées et des métaphores qui ne sont plus perçues comme telles, à une vision du monde qui règle et détermine la vie en société aussi bien que les relations avec autrui, depuis les relations personnelles jusqu'aux rapports de forces entre collectivités : des jalousies individuelles aux rivalités économiques, querelles territoriales jusqu'aux guerres civiles et entre nations.

On pourrait affirmer que la littérature de langue française ayant pour thème l'Afrique et ses hommes, si elle est africaine, l'est autant sous la plume des écrivains blancs que sous celle des écrivains noirs. Mais cette étude de langue et de style paraît démontrer amplement qu'il ne s'agirait , ni plus ni moins que de littérature française. L'ouvrage tente de redéfinir la littérature francophone négro-africaine sur des critères autres que ceux de l'idéologie et de la race. La grammaire, l'étude attentive du lexique et de la syntaxe, permettent de poser un regard plus objectif sur la partie de la littérature française qui concerne l'Afrique.

Au moment, où en France, les débats sur l'histoire d'Afrique prennent une vivacité nouvelle avec l'affrontement des mémoires héritées de l'époque coloniale, il est utile de se rappeler les apports d'une génération d'historiens qui, dans les années 1960-1980, a contribué à mettre au jour le passé le plus ancien de ce continent. Claude-Hélène Perrot, lontemps professeur à l'université de Paris 1, a contibué à ce renouvellement de l'écriture de l'histoire africaine. Cet ouvrage met en valeur la complexité entre l'oral et l'écrit. C'est à la fois un témoignage sur le passé et une interrogation sur l'avenir des recherches sur l'oralité.

This volume is the first fully comprehensive account of film production in the Third World. Although they are usually ignored or marginalized in histories of world cinema," Third World countries now produce well over half of the world’s films. Roy Armes sets out initially to place this huge output in a wider context, examining the forces of tradition and colonialism that have shaped the Third World--defined as those countries that have emerged from Western control but have not fully developed their economic potential or rejected the capitalist system in favor of some socialist alternative. He then considers the paradoxes of social structure and cultural life in the post-independence world, where even such basic concepts as "nation," "national culture," and "language" are problematic. The first experience of cinema for such countries has invariably been that of imported Western films, which created the audience and, in most cases, still dominate the market today. Thus, Third World film makers have had to ssert their identity against formidable outside pressures. The later sections of the book look at their output from a number of angles: in terms of the stages of overall growth and corresponding stages of cinematic development; from the point of view of regional evolution in Asia, Africa, and Latin America; and through a detailed examination of the work of some of the Third World’s most striking film innovators. In addition to charting the broad outlines of filmic developments too little known in Europe and the United States, the book calls into question many of the assumptions that shape conventional film history. It stresse the role of distribution in defining and limiting production, queries simplistic notions of independent "national cinemas," and points to the need to take social and economic factors into account when considering authorship in cinema. Above all, the book celebrates the achievements of a mass of largely unknown film makers who, in difficult circumstances, have distinctively expanded our definitions of the art of cinema. Roy Armes, who lives in London, has written nine books on film, his most recent being French Cinema. He spent more than three years researching this volume.

Africa in Narratives illuminates or proves, against the backdrop of attitudes toward nations deemed ethnic or minorities, that literature in Africa can live up to the challenge of aesthetic imagination to form an active, refreshing part of world cultural discourse. African countries have evolved imaginatively beyond their present ephemeral stages of social and political turmoil not to talk of intellectual imitations of western thought, nation literatures should be subject to the imperative of a continental cooperation.

Nineteenth-century French Realism focuses on metropolitan France, with Paris as its undisputed heart. Through Jennifer Yee's close reading of the great novelists of the French realist and naturalist canon - Balzac, Flaubert, Zola, Maupassant - The Colonial Comedy reveals that the colonies play a role at a distance even in the most apparently metropolitan texts. In what Edward Said called 'geographical notations' of race and imperialism the presence of the colonies off-stage is apparent as imported objects, colonial merchandise, and individuals whose colonial experience is transformative. Indeed, the realist novel registers the presence of the emerging global world-system through networks of importation, financial speculation, and immigration as well as direct colonial violence and power structures. The literature of the century responds to the last decades of French slavery, and direct colonialism (notably in Algeria), but also economic imperialism and the extension of French influence elsewhere. Far from imperialist triumphalism, in the realist novel exotic objects are portrayed as fake or mass-produced for the growing bourgeois market, while economic imperialism is associated with fraud and manipulation. The deliberate contrast of colonialism and exoticism within the metropolitan novel, and ironic distancing of colonial narratives, reveal the realist mode to be capable of questioning its own epistemological basis. The Colonial Comedy argues for the existence in the nineteenth century of a Critical Orientalism characterized by critique of its own discursive foundations. Using the tools of literary analysis within a materialist approach, The Colonial Comedy opens up the domestic Paris-Provinces axis to signifying chains pointing towards the colonial space.

The first major comparative study of African writing in western languages, European-language Writing in Sub-Saharan Africa, edited by Albert S. Gérard, falls into four wide-ranging sections: an overview of early contacts and colonial developments “Under Western Eyes”; chapters on “Black Consciousness” manifest in the debates over Panafricanism and Negritude; a group of essays on mental decolonization expressed in “Black Power” texts at the time of independence struggles; and finally “Comparative Vistas,” sketching directions that future comparative study might explore. An introductory essay stresses the millennia of writing in Africa, side by side with a richly eloquent and artistic set of vernacular oral traditions; written and oral traditions have become interwoven in adaptations of imported forms and linguistic innovations that challenge traditional “high” literary norms. Gérard uses the mathematical concept of “fuzzy sets” to explain why the focus on “Black Africa” has led him to set aside for future analysis the literatures produced in North Africa, which fall under the influence of Muslim civilization, as well as the diasporic literatures of the New World. Over sixty scholars from twenty-two countries contribute specialized studies of creative writing by leading authors in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries such as Achebe, Mphahlele, Ngugi, Senghor, Soyinka, and Tutuola. Critical analyses are organized primarily around regions, reflecting different colonial languages imposed through schools and other social institutions. Some authors trace the adaptation of western genres, others identify syncretism with folktales or myths. The volumes are attentive to the heterogeneity of national literatures addressed to polyethnic and multilingual populations, and they note the instrumental politics of language in newly independent states. A closing chapter, “Tasks Ahead,” identifies areas for future scholars to explore.

Analysant les étapes marquantes de l'évolution du travail au Sénégal, Babacar Fall reconstitue d'abord l'intégration de la société sénégalaise dans le capitalisme mondial et ses conséquences contradictoires sur la nature et la perception du travail manuel. Il caractérise ensuite les évolutions qui ont eu lieu au lendemain de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, en insistant sur les mutations qui ont remplacé progressivement le secteur privé par l'etat dans le rôle de premier employeur, en favorisant la croissance du secteur informel et l'émigration croissante de la main-d'oeuvre jeune. La période considérée cristallise les mutations subies par le travail depuis les temps immémoriaux. On y retrouve les caractéristiques majeures du travail manuel, agricole, artisanal, manufacturier et autres. Elle révèle aussi les stigmates legués par le commerce transatlantique avec les avatars de l'esclavage et le poids du travail forcé dans les premières formes de mobilisation de la main-d'oeuvre opérées par le système colonial. On y décèle également l'évolution du statut du travail dans l'échelle des valeurs des diverses communautés sénégalaises. Le XXe siècle porte la marque singulière du système colonial qui a introduit le travail salarié, mis en place une infrastructure industrielle et facilité l'émergence de Dakar comme métropole de l'Afriaque occidentale française. Grâce au recours à des sources multiples, en particulier aux témoignages oraux, Babacar Fall propose une contribution majeure sur l'historie du travail et de la classe ouvrière en Afrique. Babacar Fall enseigne à la Faculté des sciences et technologies de l'éducation de la formation à l'UNiversité Cheikh Anta Diop de Dakar. Spécialiste de l'histoire du travail en Afrique de l'Ouest francophone, il est l'auteur de nombreuses publications sur l'histore du travail, les migrations, l'éducation à la citoyenneté et les innovations pédagogiques.
