J. M. Coetzee and the Ethics of Narrative Transgression: A Reconsideration of Metalepsis (Hardback)Alexandra Effe (author)
- We can order this
This study analyzes Coetzee's novels in three chapters organized thematically around the author's relation with character, reader, and self. Author and character are discussed on the basis of Foe, Slow Man, and Coetzee's Nobel lecture, 'He and His Man'. Stories featuring the character Elizabeth Costello, or the figuration Elizabeth Curren, serve to elaborate the relation of author and reader. The study ends on a reading of Summertime, Diary of a Bad Year, and Dusklands as Coetzee's engagement with autobiographical writing, analyzing the relation of author and self. It will appeal to readers with an interest in literary and narrative theory as much as to Coetzee scholars and advanced students.
