In Entanglement: Literary and Cultural Reflections on Post-Apartheid (2009), Sarah Nuttall proposes a fresh way of approaching current South African cultural goods, including literature, a way that contains an element of healing for South Africa's damaged society. Nuttall argues for "a politics of the emergent in South Africa [that] looks [for] the potential, both latent and surfacing, for imminent change" (158). A key concept that Nuttall uses to control and sustain her argument is, as the title of her book announces, that of "entanglement."
