Abstract


Re-reading the C.M. van den Heever "classics" (1935) and (1939) within the framework of Van den Heever criticism through the years, one becomes aware that central themes in his oeuvre are acted out by women. The beautiful young girl Linda in embodies the sadness of the transcience of beauty and happiness. Through Ouma Willa, Betta and Johanna - three women from three generations in - the theme of the endurance of the memory of love and passion beyond decay and death is expressed. A cursory examination of other and earlier works by Van den Heever - (1927), (1928), (1937) and the short story "" (Lies) from (1934) - bears out the observation that women express core meanings in C.M. van den Heever's prose works.


By die herlees van die twee klassieke tekste van C.M. van den Heever, (1935) en (1939), binne die raamwerk van Van den Heever-kritiek deur die jare, word 'n mens daarvan bewus dat temas wat sentraal staan in die Van den Heever-oeuvre deur vrouekarakters in sy werk verwoord en verbeeld word. Die mooi jongmeisie Linda in beliggaam die droefheid oor die verganklikheid van skoonheid en geluk. Deur Ouma Willa, Betta en Johanna - drie vroue uit drie generasies in - word die duursaamheid van die herinnering aan liefde en hartstog, verby verval en dood, uitgebeeld. 'n Vlugtige verkenning van ander vroeë werke van C.M. van den Heever - (1927), (1928), (1937) en die kortverhaal "" uit (1934) - bevestig die waarneming dat vroue kernbetekenisse in C.M. van den Heever se prosawerk uitdruk.
