  OLD MYTHS – MODERN EMPIRES Power,Language and Identity inJ.M.Coetzee’s Work      M    I    C    H    E    L    A    C    A    N    E    P    A    R    I  -    L    A    B    I    B    P    E    T    E    R    L    A    N    G  This study gives substantial coverage and close critical attention to a wide rangeofCoetzee’s published writings,in the attempt to situate his œuvre within theframework ofboth postmodernist and postcolonial theory and criticism.Inaddition,it links the political and social aspects ofCoetzee’s work,its SouthAfrican provenance and its often oblique engagement with contemporary issues,with formal questions regarding structure,rhetoric and narrativestrategies as tackled in his novels.By approaching Coetzee’s fiction from avariety ofcritical angles and taking into account both the transformations in the socio-political context ofSouth Africa,and the recent changes in critical reception (exemplified by the Nobel Prize he was awarded in 2003) thisbook therefore offers a thorough assessment ofthe author’s œuvre.
