The Fortunes of Wangrin
Amadou Hampaté Bâ [note special accents on the "e" in Hampate and "a" Ba not correctly reproduced here?see ms.]
Translated by Aina Pavolini Taylor with an Introduction by F. Abiola Irele

Winner of the Grand Prix Litteraire de l?Afrique Noire

"I think this is perhaps the best African novel on colonialism and it draws very richly on various modes of oral literature." ?Ralph Austen, University of Chicago

"It is a wonderful introduction to colonial rule as experienced by Africans, and in particular, to the rule of African middlemen." ?Martin A. Klein, University of Toronto

"The Fortunes of Wangrin is not only a wonderful novel by one of Africa?s most renowned intellectuals, it is also literally filled with information about French colonization and its impact on traditional African societies, African resistance and collaboration to colonization, the impact of French education in Africa, and a host of other subjects of interest." ?Francois Manchuelle, New York University

Wangrin is a rogue and an operator, hustling both the colonial French and his own people. He is funny, outrageous, corrupt, traditional, and memorable. Bâ?s book bridges the chasm between oral and written literature. The stories about Wangrin are drawn from oral sources, but in the hands of this gifted writer these materials become transformed through the power of artistic imagination and license.

The Fortunes of Wangrin is a classic in Franchophone African literature.

Amadou Hampaté Bâ was a distinguished Malian poet and scholar of African oral tradition and precolonial history.

Aina Pavolini Taylor is an independent translator with wide experience of Africa, now living and working in Italy.

F. Abiola Irele is a professor in the Department of Black Studies at Ohio State University.

Buchbeschreibung Indiana University Press. Hardback. Buchzustand: new. BRAND NEW, The Fortunes of Wangrin: The Life and Times of an African Confidence Man (New edition), Amadou Hampate Ba, F.Abiola Irele, Aina Pavolini Taylor, The first thing to be said about Wangrin is that he is a rogue. Whatever forces, traditional or colonial, that shaped him, he is, above all, a very human rogue. He is also an operator, working both the colonial French and his own people. He is funny, outrageous, corrupt, traditional, and memorable. If Wangrin is a representative character at a time of transition, B's book also bridges the chasm between oral and written literature. Many of the stories about Wangrin are drawn from oral sources, but in the hands of the gifted veteran Malian scholar and writer these materials become transformed through the power of artistic imagination and license."The Fortunes of Wangrin" is generally considered to be the greatest testimony of the impact of the colonial system on local populations during the period of the establishments of French rule in the Sahelian region of West Africa. The book won the Grand Prix Litteraire de l'Afrique Noire on its publication in French in 1976 and is now recognised as a classic in franchophone African literature. 'Where did Wangrin come from?' 'Wangrin was born in a country both ancient and mysterious, a country where rain and wind, in the service of the gods, gnashed the mountainside with their invisible and useless teeth, creating in the process a flat and monotonous surface.' - from the Overture.
