Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

South African literature abounds with traumatized individuals and traumatizing events. Rape, torture, murder, civil war - violence in all imaginable shapes and sizes - are characteristic features of the contemporary South African novel. The novelists themselves seem to have been traumatized by history. They were witnesses of what happened under the apartheid regime; more often than not, they were victims who decided to leave their home country, either because they could no longer endure what was going on, or because they were forced to go into exile. In their novels they feature traumatized individuals and put their experiences into words. Their works also bear witness to the collective trauma of their nation, and, as such, they are narrative attempts of coming to terms with the past.
