RENÉ MARAN, L’ÉVEILLEUR DES CONSCIENCES

France - 2006

In December 1921, René Maran, Guyano-Martinican by birth, won the Goncourt Prize for his novel Batouala. At this time, he was colonial administrator in Oubangui-Chari, centrafrican Republic. This novel which preface reveals, the repressive attitude of the colonial authorities to the African people, contributed to his fame and national legitimacy; consequently writers like Senghor chose him as precursor of the “Negroid state”.
