  Mariama Ba - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mariama Ba (1929-1981) was a Senegalese author and feminist, who wrote in French.
Ba later married a Senegalese member of Parliament, Obèye Diop, but divorced him and was left to care for their nine children.
Ba died a year later after a protracted illness, before her second novel, Scarlet Song was published.

 Wagadu Issue 1: MARIAMA Bâ(1929-1981) by Siga Fatima Jagne   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Mariama Bâ as a writer is caught between tradition and the move towards modernity.
Mariama Bâ herself, believed that the mission of the writer in Senegalese society was to write against, "the archaic practices, traditions and customs that are not a real part of our precious heritage."(Preface to So Long a Letter).
Mariama Bâ, in her presentation of a woman like Tante Nabou, shows the problem involved in locating a female solidarity: as caste, age and "bloodlines" become more important than being female.

 [No title]
Mariama Ba again takes up the theme of distortion of the original intent and purpose of social ceremonies which she condemns vigorously in So Long a Letter on the occasion of the funeral of Modou Fall.
Mariama Ba provides a positive role model of the mother-in-law in the person of Rama because she feels no urge to intervene in the affairs of her pregnant school-age daughter, Aissatou, to impose her wishes.
However, the fact is that Mariama Ba sees the vanity, lust, and fickle-mindedness of the male as the greater decisive factor in this process… In spite of awesome odds, Mariama Ba’s heroines are champions of change and justice and they inspire other women and people to live and carry on.

 Amazing | So Long a Letter (African Writers Series) | Mariama Ba   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In this absolutely magnificent book by Mariama Ba that is written in a poetic flow, Ramatoulaye determinedly adjusts to her changing roles and writes a letter to her close friend Aissatou, who now lives abroad as a single woman.
According to a note about Ba at the beginning of the book, she was born in the African nation of Senegal and died in 1981.
I wish Mariama Ba hadn't passed away because her style was so pleasing and so involving that I would have loved to have read more by her.

 Welcome to The Eye: Book Review - Scarlet Song : Mariama Ba
She uses the love story of Ousmane – a boy from the poor side of town made good, and Mireille – the daughter of a French diplomat who Ousmane meets in High School, to explore the conflicts of culture, colour and wealth that are the legacy of post-colonial Africa.
Indeed, the weaknesses of this book stem precisely from the fact that Mariama Ba has internalised her culture’s conception of what a woman’s place should be and it crops up in the plot where it has no business.
Otherwise Ba is as observant on the intricacies of human relationships as always.

We’ve imagined that Achebe’s work is directed outwards—from Nigeria (many of whose inhabitants would not have been equipped, in Achebe’s day, of reading this novel), to those kinds of readers who have received their image of Africa from Conrad and Cary.
What about with Ba’s novel—who do you think she expects to be reading her work?
Less of Ramatoulaye’s anger seems to be directed at Modu Fall, her husband, than is directed at other sources: the delegation that informed her of his treachery, the mother-in-law, Tamsir, who comes with a proposal of marriage while she is still in mourning.

In So Long A Letter, Mawdo Ba acts as a good husband and as a person to envy and emulate.
