This article consider literary creation as a way of resisting situations of extreme urgency, and economic and political problems. How to say the unnameable and the unspeakable, this is the work of the writer. It is also a fight against time, against events that disrupt the existence of humans and sometimes crush them. Today, in the era we call ‘post-colonial’, the colonial has not disappeared, and in Africa, written literature must define its place as a form of resistance alongside orality, which is also very powerful. Francophony is both a support and a disadvantage because it tends to isolate writers who belong to it. As for the intrinsic power of the work of writing, which is closely linked to individual and collective history, to memory, it depends on the fact that it is an expression of the uniqueness of the writer, while at the same time linking him or her to other individuals and other cultures.
