Sembene Ousmaneï¿½s entire literary horizon is dominated by the desire to arouse socio-political awareness in the people. He seems to be persuaded in many of his early literary works that a revolution is necessary in order to bring about an egalitarian society. His stories depict the masses in their struggle against oppression and exploitation.
