Abstract

Die voorstellings en die skrywer self van drie Suid-Afrikaanse skrywers, twee wit vroulike skrywers en een manlike van Maleier afkoms, word ondersoek teen die agtergrond van apartheidsidentiteit paradigmas en die postmodernistiese hersiening van die Verligting-idee van die self as kompleks en voortdurend veranderend. Die fokus van die artikel is op die herformulerings van die self deur die oorsteek van werklike en konseptuele grense om die dominerende patrone, sowel as die mislukkings, stiltes, verplasings en transformasies, aan te toon.

The representations and the writing self of three South African writers, two white women and one male of Malay descent, are explored against apartheid identity paradigms and the postmodernist revisioning of the Enlightenment notion of the self as complex and constantly shifting. The focus in the article is on the reformulations of the self by the crossing of actual and conceptual boundaries to show dominating patterns as well as failures, silences, displacements and transformations.
