Abstract

In Coetzee en Schoeman se outobiografiese tekste is daar motiewe wat ooreenstem (problematiese moederbinding, buitestanderskap en alternatiewe identiteite). Op grond van parallelle in hul roman-oeuvres ten opsigte van die verhouding tussen geskiedskrywing en fiksie, word 'n vergelykende ondersoek gedoen van &lt;I&gt;Boyhood&lt;/I&gt; (Coetzee 1997), &lt;I&gt;Youth&lt;/I&gt; (Coetzee 2002) en <I>Die laaste Afrikaanse boek&lt;/I&gt; (Schoeman 2002), binne die raamwerk van Suid-Afrikaanse skrywers-outobiografieƫ.

There are parallels in the relationship between historiography and fiction in the oeuvres of Coetzee and Schoeman. A comparative study is undertaken of their auto-biographical texts within the framework of South African writers' autobiographies, and on the basis of related motives (problematic mother binding, the status of the subject as outsider, and alternative identities of the self) in &lt;I&gt;Boyhood&lt;/I&gt; (Coetzee 1997), <I>Youth</I> (Coetzee 2002) and <I>Die laaste Afrikaanse boek&lt;/I&gt; (Schoeman 2002).
