Abstract


In this article, three novels published in 2002 - namely by Ingrid Winterbach, by Jackie Nagtegaal and by Dan Sleigh - are compared with reference to the perspectives the three texts furnish on the idea of creativity. The initial point of departure is the way in which language is used in the novels. This approach tangentially touches on the debate about "Engrikaans", a form of code switching used by certain Afrikaans authors. The article illustrates how a certain kind of creativity can be associated with the consumer society and the culture industry, whilst a creativity which transcends the dictates of the culture industry proceeds from a position where the supposedly integrated subject is destabilised or put "in process".

In hierdie artikel word drie romans wat in 2002 verskyn het, naamlik deur Ingrid Winterbach, deur Jackie Nagtegaal and deur Dan Sleigh vergelyk met verwysing na die idee van "kreatiwiteit". Die aanvanklike vertrekpunt vir dié vergelyking is die manier waarop taal gebruik word as boustof in die romans. Die debat oor "Engfrikaans" word ook sydelings aangeraak. Die artikel wys hoe 'n sekere soort kreatiwiteit geassosieer kan word met die verbruikersamelewing en die kultuurindustrie, terwyl kreatiwiteit wat die voorskrifte van die kultuurindustrie oorstyg, staat maak op 'n benadering waarin die veronderstelde geïntegreerde subjek gedestabiliseer of "in proses" geplaas word.
