3 poets of Negritude

Nimrod, Gopal Dagnogo, Bruno Doucey, Christian Epanya, Véronique Tadjo, William Wilson
This set brings together the 3 titles on the poets of Negritude; Senghor, Damas and Césaire invented the concept of Negritude –the defense of the black people's values - in 1934, while at the same time revolutionizing poetry by enriching the French language with the colors of Senegal, Guyana and Martinique. An indispensable page of history for children.
  • Nimrod An excellent connoisseur of negritude poets, it is both as a novelist and a poet that Nimrod tells us about the enchanted life of Léon-Gontran Damas. Nimrod publishes with Actes Sud and Obsidiane.

  • Gopal Dagnogo is a painter. He nourishes his work from combinations, readings, and the diversity that he encounters during his travels between Africa, Europe, and Asia.  In the “Seeds and Guides” collection, he has illustrated the title on Sitting Bull, Miriam Makeba, Alexandra David-Néel, as well as that on Léon-Gontran Damas.

  • Bruno Doucey , writer and poet, has written the title on Aimé Césaire in the “Seeds and Guides” collection, and that on Theodore Monod.

  • Christian Epanya An admirer of the great poet, author, and politician of Martinique, and also author illustrator of Taxi-brousse de Papa Diop, Christian Epanya interprets here, with his pencils and brushes, the life of Aimé Césaire.

  • Véronique Tadjo is a writer from the Ivory Coast, who is the authoress of poems, novels, and works for the young.

  • William Wilson The son of a French mother and of a father from Togo and Benin, William Wilsonlives and works in Paris. An eclectic artist, he works as much for youth literature or for the press, as he does for art galleries, for the performing arts, or for the arts of tableware or textile. 

We speak of it!
  • Léon-Gontran Damas, Aimé Césaire and Léopold Sédar Senghor met in Paris in the 1930s. These three poets of the Negritude movement now each have a work dedicated to them by the same À dos d'âne publishers.
