Abstract:

"In this important new study, Hamilton establishes and develops innovative links between the sites of postcolonial literary theory, the fiction of the South African/Australian academic and Nobel Prize-winning writer J.M. Coetzee, and the work of the French poststructuralist philosopher Gilles Deleuze. Centering on the key postcolonial problematic of representation, Hamilton argues that if one approaches the colonial subject through Gilles Deleuze's rewriting of subjectivity, then a transcendent configuration of the colonial subject is revealed. Importantly, it is this rendition of the colonial subject that accounts best for the way in which the colonial subject is able to propose and offer instances of resistance to colonial structures of subjectification. In elucidating this claim, the study turns to the fiction of Coetzee. Offering unique Deleuzean readings of three of Coetzee's most theoretically beguiling novels - Dusklands, Waiting for the Barbarians, and Foe - On Representation will prove to be essential reading to those interested in Coetzee studies, the literary terrain of Deleuze's philosophy, and those engaging with contemporary debates in postcolonial literature and theory."--Publisher's website.
