Dictionnaire des ?rivains FrancophonesLe Dictionnaire des ?ivains francophones r?it plus de cent soixante articles emprunt?au fonds de l'Encyclop?a Universalis. travers des oeuvres aussi diverses que celles de L?old S?r Senghor, Aim??ire, Kateb Yacine, Georges Sch?d?u Patrick Chamoiseau, on voit comment les litt?tures francophones ont progressivement affirm?eur existence propre en m? temps que s'affirmait la notion de francophonie , au moment des d?lonisations, lorsqu'on prit conscience que le fran?s, loin de se r?ire ?ne identit?ationale, pouvait exprimer les valeurs et les r?s des peuples les plus divers. The Dictionary of French-speaking writers brings together more than 160 articles borrowed from the collection of the Encyclop?a Universalis. Through works as diverse as those of L?old S?r Senghor, Aim??ire, Kateb Yacine, Georges Sch?d?r Patrick Chamoiseau, we see how French-speaking literatures have gradually asserted their own existence at the same time as the notion of "Francophonie" asserted itself, at the time of decolonization, when we realized that French, far from being reduced to a national identity, could express the values and dreams of the most diverse peoples.
