Abstract

This paper seeks to correct binary readings of by using a post-modernist paradigm that takes into account contradictions and paradoxes in the text. By reading through a revisionary postmodern escape-entrapment framework, the encoded presence of resistance and its effectiveness in praxis in the allegorical narrative and language are assessed. It is also shown how the writer, J.M. Coetzee, in his discursive practices and philosophical standpoint, is caught up in the linguistic web he himself weaves.


Hierdie artikel poog om 'n binêre lesing van te korrigeer deur van 'n postmodernistiese paradigma gebruik te maak wat die teenstrydighede en paradokse van die teks in ag neem. Deur aan die hand van 'n hersienende, postmodernistiese "escape-entrapment"-raamwerk te lees word die geënkodeerde aanwesigheid van weerstand en die effektiwiteit daarvan in die praktyk in die allegoriese verhaal en die taal beoordeel. Daar word ook gewys hoe die outeur, J.M. Coetzee, in sy redenering en filosofiese standpunte vasgevang word in die linguistiese web wat hy weef.
