Abstract

René Maran and Joseph Zobel are two novelists who belong to the French Caribbean Literature. In the first half of the 20th century, René Maran published a novel Batouala and Joseph Zobel also published his Diab’là. At this era, these texts were regarded as subversive because of the anti-colonial ideas they promoted. This research work aims at analyzing how these two writers promoted anti-colonial ideas in their works. In these two novels centered on anticolonialist cause, the denunciation is made through the words and the actions of characters who revealed clearly their anger vis-à-vis colonial exploitation. These writers use the stories of their main characters to report the unfair treatment suffered and to give more strength and pride to the victims of colonial exploitation.
