Les murmures de l'harmattan

by Emmanuel Matateyou

L’auteur de Les Murmures de l’harmattan reproduit la vie dans un certain ordre harmonique enveloppée de rêves soigneusement triés et équilibrés. Observateur attentif de sa société dont il décrit avec une attachante passion les grands mouvements qui donnent à l’existence une réelle densité, Emmanuel Matateyou dans ce cocktail de poèmes exquis promène le lecteur à travers la société africaine où l’Harmattan, ce vent d’Est, détruit en balayant à son passage les laideurs, les vicissitudes et les déchirements pour laisser la place à une quête enivrante du nouveau. Dans le flux de ces mots et dans la trame de ces images, on vit le rêve, les fantasmes et les utopies de cet amoureux de la vie qui sont traduits à travers des correspondances révélatrices d’une poétique de l’enracinement, de la passion et de l’espoir.

The author of Harmattan Whispers reproduces life in such a harmonic order enveloped with dreams carefully filtered and balanced. As a keen observer of his society, he describes with passionate fervour movements that give existence its density. Emmanuel Matateyou in this poetic cocktail of his takes the reader through an African society where Harmattan, this North East trade wind, destroys as it sweeps along the ugly, the vicissitudes and the shredded pieces of life to leave place to a new kind of drunken quest. In the flux of his words and imagery, he gives life to dreams, fantasies and the Utopian visions of this lover of life, all of which are brought to the limelight through poetically revealing correspondences all rooted in passion and hope.
