Research Paper from the year 2010 in the subject English - Literature, Works, Mouloud Mammeri University of Tizi-ouzou (Department of English), course: Litterature comparee (Africaine et Britanique), language: English, comment: Auteurs de l'article: Amar GUENDOUZI, Docteur en Litterature Africaine, chef du Departement de Traduction et d'Interpretariat de l'Universite de Tizi-ouzou et Bouteldja RICHE, Professeur en Litterature et Civilisation Anglaise, alumni du Seminaire de Salzburg Autriche, auteur de manuels scolaires en lange anglaise agree aupres du Ministere de l'Education Nationale, President du Conseil Scientifique de la Faculte des Lettres et Sciences Humaines, et Membre du Conseil Scientifique de l'Universite de Tizi-ouzou., abstract: This paper is concerned with the issues of mimicry and hybridity in two novels belonging to two antagonistic periods in contemporary literary history: the colonial and the postcolonial literatures. It explores through the genre of juvenile fiction the way Ayi Kwei Armah's The Healers (1978) grappled with the legacy of Rudyard Kipling in terms of cultural and educational frames of reference. In effect, we postulate that, not only is Armah keen to distance his narrative from the far-reaching political and cultural implications inscribed in the colonial project of mimicry, but he is equally eager to take full advantage of the abrogative and appropriative thrusts inherent in the hybrid discourse in order to formulate a sense of identity and purpose that is new and native. Resume: Cet article est une etude des questions de la mimique (mimicry) et de l'hybridite dans deux romans appartenant a deux periodes litteraires contemporaines antagonistes: la periode coloniale et la periode postcoloniale. Il explore a travers le genre de la litterature juvenile la maniere avec laquelle la fiction de Armah The Healers (1978) s'attaque a l'heritage de Rudyard Kipling, en termes de culture et d'education. Notre postulat est que, non seul"
