Naviguer entre les Frontières Sexuelles : Attitude Bisexuelle dans Les Fureurs et cris de femmes d’Angèle Rawiri

Richard Oko Ajah, Christiana Ogboali Elendu

Abstract


RESUME

Il est bien vrai que dans la littérature africaine francophone, le thème du féminisme est couramment traité de diverses manières et considéré comme une rivière trop épuisée. Cependant, cet article, en évoquant la rhétorique de sexualité transgressive et sa théorie, tente de voir comment Angèle Rawiris’engage dans la navigation préméditée entre les frontières de la sexualité.  L’auteure bâtit les colonnes de sexualité hétérosexuelle et homosexuelle qu’elle arrive à détruire sans rien regretter. Ces personnages que crée Rawiri arrivent à acquérir une attitude plus tôt bisexuelle parce que la société africaine ne favorise pas la croissance de la liberté sexuelle.
