Tchicaya U TAM'SI mêle dans une écriture subversive son angoisse existentielle à la passion du Congo, son pays natal. En rupture avec la poésie de la négritude, il propose des poèmes éclatés, à la syntaxe désarticulée, travaillés par des ruptures de tons, de collages baroques, qui juxtaposent le prosaïque et le sublime, provoquant ainsi une tension, qui, à son tour, provoque l'intranquillité du lecteur. "Epitomé" fut initialement publié en 1962, et "Arc musical" en 1968

1 edition published in 2001 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

THIS DOCTORAL DISSERTATION DEALS WITH FRENCH-SPEAKING AND COMPARATIVE LITERATURE. IN THIS BROAD LITERARY FIELD, I CHOSE ONLY TWO AUTHORS : TAHAR BEN JELLOUN, A MOROCCAN AND T. U TAM'SI FROM CONGO. BEING A MOROCCAN MYSELF, I CHOSE TO STUDY BEN JELLOUN'S PLURICULTURAL WORK. I FOCUSED ON HIS NOVELS BECAUSE THEY SET THE PROBLEM OF IDENTITY CRISIS AND CAN BE READ AS AN INSISTENT CALL FOR SEARCHING ONE'S ORIGINS IN ORDER TO FACE A DISTURBING MODERN WORLD. THUS, BASICALLY, HIS WORK TRIES TO RECONCILE HIS MUSLIM-ARABIC CULTURE WITH WHICH HE COULD NEVER BREAK OFF, WITH A WESTERN CONTRIBUTION WHICH HAS TO BE SAVED. THE SAME QUESTIONS - BY WHICH I AM DEAPLY AFFECTED - ARE ALSO REVISED BY THE CONGOLESE WRITER T. U TAMS'I. HIS WORK CAN BE CONSIDERED AS A CONSTANT DEBATE BETWEEN HIS AFRICAN HERITAGE AND HIS NEW CHRISTIAN CIVILISATION. THOUGH THESE TWO PROSE WRITERS ORIGINATED FROM DISTANT COUNTRIES, BELONG TO TWO DIFFERENT RELIGIONS AND CULTURES - T. BEN JELLOUN IS A MUSLIM WHEREAS T. U TAMS'I IS A ROMAN CATHOLIC - THEY SHARE A COMMON TASTE FOR TRADITION AND FOR MAJOR RECURRING THEMES SUCH AS RELIGION AND THE SACRED. BOTH WRITE ON MANY LEVELS WITH DIFFERENT SENSITIVITIES BUT WITH A COMMON PROBLEM : HOW TO COMBINE TWO ANTINOMIC WORLDS. IT SEEMED NECESSARY TO TACKLE FIRST WITH THE SUBSAHARIAN WORK IN ORDER TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE NORTH AFRICAN ONE AND TO SHOW HOW IT IS DIFFERENT AND COMPLEMENTARY. THIS PLURICULTURAL WRITING INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING THEMES : IMITATING WESTERN AESTHETIC MODELS ; ASSERTING STRONGLY AN IDENTITY ; INTELLECTUAL STUDIES FREE FROM ANY COMPLEX
