About this Item

336 p., bibliography, index. The author's inscription is on the half-title page. Pendant longtemps le panégyrique dynastique mbíímbi a été considéré comme un phénomène curieux dont la pratique était réservée à la cour de Kyáámbvu, le roi des Bayaka. Mais, soumis à un examen rigoureux et méthodique, ce chant d'exaltation est apparu dans sa spécificité. C'est une littérature officielle au service de l'idéologie de la minorité dominante, dans une société yaka où les oppositions entre envahisseurs dominants Baluwa et autochtones dominés Bayaka, sont encore assez perceptibles. Par-delà son caractère propagandiste, cette poésie de cour draine en filigrane la culture yaka commune aux uns et aux autres, véhiculant la vision du monde du peuple yaka. D'autre part, ce panégyrique est une esthétique verbale. En effet, les chantres dynastiques bavwáala, spécialistes détenteurs de ce genre littéraire, portent un soin particulier à l'agencement des mots, et à un choix riche d'images et de symboles qui ne manquent pas de fasciner leurs auditeurs. 0.0.
