Writing South Africa : literature, apartheid, and democracy 1970-1995( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the final years of the apartheid era and the subsequent transition to democracy, South African literary writing caught the world's attention as never before. Writers responded to the changing political situation and its daily impact on the country's inhabitants with works that recorded or satirised state-enforced racism, explored the possibilities of resistance and rebuilding, and creatively addressed the vexed question of literature's relation to politics and ethics. Writing South Africa offers a window on the literary activity of this extraordinary period that conveys its range (going well beyond a handful of world-renowned names) and its significance for anyone interested in the impact of decolonisation and democratisation on the cultural sphere. It brings together for the first time discussions by some of the most distinguished South African novelists, poets, and dramatists, with those of leading commentators based in South Africa, Britain and North America

Formerly I Was Well Known to You : Nature and Growth in Indian Captivity Narratives by August Sanchez( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The American Indian captivity narrative genre went through three major phases of purpose during its nearly four hundred year life. At first captivity narratives served to contextualize suffering through Gods punishment. Next the captivity narratives were employed as propaganda, rallying support for Americas war with indigenous peoples. Lastly the captivity narrative was for amusement, with no ulterior motive than excitement. Collected from across genre phases, late 19th and early 20th century narrative collections acted independently of their original purpose. Captive Among the Indians may have been purposefully curated instructively, by paring hardship with nature to exemplify personal growth
