Keywords: Women’s writing | African literature | Calixthe Beyala

Prolific (she has published fourteen novels from 1987 to 2007 and two essays), Calixthe Beyala has become one of the most important novelists of the African women's literature. What strikes the reader in the first approach of her works is, among other details, the presence of a female subjectivity trying to express itself, the permanence of Women, Women and body. By this way of writing, close to what great women writers do and theorists of women's literature deal with, we can state that it illustrates feminine writing.
