Abstract:Four essays in this issue are devoted to the Congolese writer Sony Labou Tansi (1947-1995). Phyllis Clark presents a reading of Sony Labou Tansi's private ancestral shrine or altar in his house in Brazzaville, which comprised Catholic icons as well as photographs of political personalities. Nicolas Martin-Granel offers a genetic approach to the 'Black continent' in Sony Labou Tansi's fiction. János Riesz describes the close relationship between 'L'état sauvage' by Georges Conchon (1964) and 'L'état honteux' (1981) by Sony Labou Tansi. Finally, Justin Kalulu Bisanswa looks at literature and representation in Sony Labou Tansi's work. Bibliogr., notes, ref.
