Politically ambivalent import
Shared by Peter McDonald Date shared 6 May 2022 Projects Source Conversation

"Being a literature student in the mid-1980s during the maddest and baddest days, we regularly had arguments. Everyone was behind Gordimer and the Black Consciousness poets, but there was a question mark about J.M Coetzee. I found Coetzee’s work invitingly baffling and challenging. Perhaps, I thought, Coetzee was doing something we couldn’t, or hadn’t yet, come to terms with? The counterargument was that he was clearly a problem because he was never banned."
