Le chant de Be.

SKU: 9782211036399
Stock: 2
Be's story tells of change among the San (or Bushmen, as the author says they prefer to be called) of Namibia. Her life emerges in flashbacks as she feels herself dying from a self-inflicted, poisoned-arrow wound. A young woman, probably in her mid teens, she remembers her warm and gentle childhood, broken by a trek with her mother to the Boer farm where her grandfather has worked for decades. The farmer's strangely fragile wife takes to the child and becomes her companion and teacher. When tragedy strikes the farm and Be concludes that she has betrayed everyone she loves, she leaves to try to return to her childhood place, only to find it empty.

Themes explored in this book: South Africa, Social climate, Racism.

LDF Notes: This collection specifically targets the 12 to 16 age group.



Be ne sait pas exactement quel âge elle a. Peut-être quatorze ans, peut-être seize. Sa mère, Aia, n'a jamais comptè les années. Elle est membre du peuple des Bushmen et se souvient de son enfance, quand elle vivait parmi les siens et que, la nuit, elle pouvait regarder les étoiles avant de s'endormir. Les choses ont beaucoup changé depuis ce temps-là. A la ferme de M. et Mme Coetzee, où Be et sa mère sont venue pour aider le grand-père, mi-employé, mi-esclave, Be a appris ce qu'elle aurait préfèré ne pas savoir. Seule et perdue au coeur de la savane, elle s'est planté une flêche empoisonnée dans la jambe, parce qu'elle n'a plus le courage de continuer. Elle attend que la mort arrive. Elle raconte son histoire. Mais Khu, celui qu'elle aime et craint ne plus jamais revoir est à sa recherche..

Thèmes explorés dans ce livre: Afrique du Sud, Conditions sociales, Racisme.

Notes LDF: Cette collection cible plus particuli�rement le groupe des 12 � 16 ans.
