n English in Africa - Tribute
Nadine Gordimer 1923-2014
Nadine Gordimer gave expression for so many decades to the textures of South African experience and the currents of our history that it is difficult for me to imagine our literary and cultural life without her.
Throughout her lengthy and extraordinarily prolific career, she challenged her readers; and now, following her death, her legacy challenges those of us who would wish to offer an appropriate tribute, for it is impossible to do justice to the vast body of work, both creative and critical, she has left, or to her status as one who, even as she observed our convoluted society with a precise and prescient eye, did much to shape our understanding of it.
