Description
For centuries, South Africa's history has been marked by division and conflict along racial and ethnic lines. From 1948 until 1994, this division was formalized in the National Party's segregationist policy of apartheid, and because it intruded on every aspect of private and public life, the literature of the era was preoccupied with the politics of race and social engineering. Since Nelson Mandela's release from prison and rise to power in the 1990s, South Africa has become a nation-in-the-making, inspired by a non-racial idealism yet beset by poverty and violence. Following a substantive introductory essay, this book profiles the country's most important literary voices, from playwright Athol Fugard to Nobel Laureate Nadine Gordimer.
