Ivorian letters

The Ivorian letters appear dominated by the figure of Bernard Dadie, who by himself summarizes all literary genres, since he has tapped all kinds ofliterary genres: poetry, literature and theater. Let us also mention Bernard Zadi Zaourou who is also a poet, we can quotes: "fer de lance". For novelists, besides Amadou Koné, Charles Nokan, we must remember Denis Oussou Essui, Ake Loba and especially Ahmadou Kourouma whose novel "The Sun of Independence" marks the renewal of the African novel of French expression. The abes are about 600,000 and would be the descendants of immigrants from Ghana.
