Great initiative! Is there an English version of these profiles?

Dibussi

Hi Mario,

There is indeed an English version of these profiles which will be published in the near future. In the meantime, you can learn more about these and other writers west of the Mungo from the Blog on Cameroon Literature in English. The URL is: http://www.anglocamlit.blogspot.com/

It is the immortal Bate Besong who once stated to French speaking Cameroonians that:

“On the Cameroonian muses’ crowded pantheon therefore, we too have been firm of feet as your own Fabien Eboussi Boulaga, Guillaume Oyono Mbia, Charly Gabriel Mbock, Gaston Paul Effa, Jacques Fame Ndongo, Hubert Mono Ndjana, Ferdinand Leopold Oyono, the immortal Mongo Beti. (But, Ignorance, as Plato remarked, is at the root of most misfortunes).”

Thanks for giving "the other side" a glimpse of some of the Southern Cameroonians who would comfortably take a seat on that literary pantheon that Bate Besong refers to in the passage above.

BY SAYING, (AUTEURS ANGLO-----)
REDUCES THESE OUR GIFTED LITERALLY GIANTS
TO AN INSULT OF PHONY IDENTITY. MEN OF NO NATIONS. BUT OF WHAT LANGUAGE THE SPEAK.
FRENCH CAMEROUN SHOULD DO THE RIGHT THING, AND CALL THIS PEOPLE AS SOUTHERN CAMEROONIANS. THATS WHAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO BE CALLED, NOT ANGLO. E,XPRESSION AMGLAIS. EXPRESSION, ESPANAIS, ETC.
THESE FRENCH-NEGROES ARE SOO, FULL OF HATRED THAT THEY CANT CALL A SPADE A SPADE.

Good work.

I read the articles as they were published. I am sure they have been very informative and educative to French-speaking Cameroonians. Even English-speaking Cameroonians need to read this stuff and it is available if they make the extra effort to search. I am sure the Cameroon Literature in English blog is worth the visit for some:http://www.anglocamlit.blogspot.com/

Peace
