Poésie ivoirienne francophone et changements sociaux : études de quelques courants

Abstract : This thesis focuses on three sides of poetry. The social changes that occurred in Côte d'Ivoire will be analyzed under the prism of the writings of the masters of orality, oralists, neo-oralists, in order to highlight the social upheavals wrought by their writings. But these writings also take into account the changes that the authors have been mere witnesses and the changes they have anticipated. On the other hand, we have shown the influence that social changes have had on their writings. The lyrical and epic writings of the masters of orality are imbued with societal changes and often "mumble" themselves in specific registers, preoccupied with their own themes, such as death. On the other hand, we have highlighted the action of the Negritude philosophers on sub-Saharan societies and the changes they have provoked through their committed writings. Then, we emphasized the importance of the oralists who were, by their critics, major actors in the change of the political system. The result has been the transition from the single party to multiparty politics. Finally, we have highlighted the significant contribution made by the neo-oralists in the Ivorian society, marked by the drift of political powers, notwithstanding the multiparty system. The neo-oralists who broadcast zouglou, slam and rap, are criticized for the low or no poeticity of their works. Nevertheless, is it possible to consider them as new paths and complementary voices that can impact societal transformations ?
