Le Prix du pardon forms the base in a book that was written by Mbissane Ngome, who, with similar characteristics to Wade, forms the coast of Senegal, where the background of the story is set. The Story of Ngome relies on an oral narrative tradition that the people with whom he is related to and Le Prix du pardon have similarities to this (Groof 200). Due to the respect he had for his oral tradition, Wade decided to be a narrator accompanied by everyday functions and all the supernatural events. This visual technique that Wade employs, as a feature debut couler locale and folklore, is beyond all functions with a very straight and sharp eye for a symbolic detail. For example, the garish pattern that is usually seen on African materials were not a choosing that simply for costumes, however, a pure and plain material with oblique colors.

He shortly manages to be left unpunished and even has the permission to marry Maxoye. Unfortunately, Maxoye is pregnant with the baby of Mbanki, a child that Yatma will be in the position to raise a great humiliation
