n English in Africa - Coetzee and Costello : two artists abroad

Volume 31, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0376-8902



Since 1997 J. M. Coetzee has written and published eight short pieces of fiction in which Elizabeth Costello is the central figure. Six of these were published as separate texts in the period 1997-2003. These, plus two new 'Costello' pieces, "Eros" and "At the Gate," with the addition of "Postscript: Letter of Elizabeth, Lady Chandos," have recently appeared in volume form under the title (2003b). The pieces gain from being published together, their commonalities and differences becoming apparent.
