The Swahili novel is one of the new literary genres developed in Tanzania after Independence, promoted by the cultural policy of Ujamaa (African socialism); the most significant novelty during the Seventies and Eighties has been the emergence of a Zanzibarian prose very appreciated by Western and African literary critics. The novel Utengano by Said Ahmed Mohamed is an emblematic work of this trend: its thematic and stylistic features are analysed underlining both the representation of the contradictions in post-revolutionary society and the writer’s serious attitude towards style and lexical research.
