Literature of Burkina Faso
Burkinabé literature was originally based around oral tradition. This remains important. In 1934, during French occupation, Dim-Dolobsom Ouedraogo published his Maximes, pensées et devinettes mossi (Maximes, Thoughts and Riddles of the Mossi), a record of the oral history of the Mossi people. The oral tradition continued to have an influence on Burkinabé writers in the post-independence Burkina Faso of the 1960s, such as Nazi Boni and Roger Nikiema. The 1960s saw a growth in the number of playwrights being published. Since the 1970s, literature has developed in Burkina Faso with many more writers being published.

Worldly Rise: BURKINA FASO: ART AND LITERATURE
The largest contribution to the artistic world from Burkina Faso is their masks. Because most of the people in this region follow an animist view of the spiritual world, most of these masks have special functions in sacrificial rites and representation of various animal gods.

But it is one thing is to describe disruption, and another to experience it. In that context, I created and…

Does Great Literature Make Us Better People? | Michael Kevane

bookshy: an African book lover: What About Francophone African Literature?
Being an English speaker, I can only read Francophone African literature that has been translated into English - I guess that is a good enough reason to finally learn French.  Although I am aware of the fact that there are many, many more books out there not translated that I am missing out on, it's still nice to know that there are a number of translated works that enable me to really explore and experience the variety of Francophone African literature out there.

Colloquial French in Africa: between popular appeal and literary exclusion | Maneno Matamu
In Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina Faso, standard French is still used in school and in official contexts. But on the streets of Abidjan and Ouagadougou, other varieties of French have flourished. How much of an influence have these colloquial forms had on the arts?

Anderson Brown's Literary Blog: Boubacar Boris Diop's Book of Bones
As it happened I was attracted to the title of Boubacar Boris Diop's 2000 novel Murambi, The Book of Bones, and the high tone of that title (Murambi, le livre des ossements; translated into English by Fiona Mc Laughlin 2006 and published by Indiana University Press) is maintained throughout this excellent short novel. It is the best entry yet in a young genre of novels and memoirs that document the Rwandan genocide of 1994, when, following patterns of ethnic violence that emerged in Rwanda in the 1950s, elements from the poorer, majority Hutu group systematically killed somewhere around 800,000 of the socioeconomically dominant Tutsis.
