    Kindle J.M. Coetzee µ Age of Iron eBook ´ Age of PDF or µ iron pdf, Age of pdf, Age of Iron MOBICoetzee at his best Mrs Curren is a typical Coetzee character a person at a point in life tht has forced him or her to be introspective and discover that word around them is full of mindless violence and hypocrisies The result is a Hamlet like paralysisSince Mrs Curren is dying death gets its bit of focus in her thoughtsLike with Foe and Disgrace the guilt of belonging to a race that has been oppressors for generations is presentBut what distinguishes Coetzee from other authors writing on such themes is his refusal to sentimentalise or mysterise the issues to extent of turning it into a liberal kitsch

    Kindle J.M. Coetzee µ Age of Iron eBook ´ Age of PDF or µ iron pdf, Age of pdf, Age of Iron MOBIIs JM Coetzee even capable of writing a single imperfect word? Not as far as I can see He than almost any other writer makes me want to be a writer makes me believe in the power of fiction but he also than almost any other writer makes me double back upon myself in fear because I know I will never have the kind of wisdom and precision that he writes into his booksI want to read every word he has ever written

    Kindle J.M. Coetzee µ Age of Iron eBook ´ Age of PDF or µ iron pdf, Age of pdf, Age of Iron MOBIAn early novel in Coetzee’s list of achievements Age of Iron depicts the author’s distaste for apartheid the revolution against it and gives prescient hints of what was to come of South Africa after Mandela Coetzee has always seemed to this reader an idealist harping elouently against human imperfections and the flawed institutions created by such faulty people But he’s always seemed to know this about himself and he’s made obvious attempts in his fiction to resolve this inner conflict In Age of Iron such contradictions couldn’t be apparent His protagonist here is a Mrs Curren a former classics professor suffering a terminal case of cancer who has always looked down on both apartheid and the struggle aga

The parade of politicians every evening I have only to see the heavy blank faces so familiar since childhood to feel gloom and nausea The bullies in the last row of school desks raw boned lumpish boys grown up now and promoted to rule the land They with their fathers and mothers their aunts and uncles their brothers and sisters a locust horde a plague of black locusts infesting the country munching without cease devouring lives Why in a spirit of horror and loathing do I watch them? Why do I let them into the house? Because the reign of the locust family is the truth of South Africa and the truth is what makes me sick? Legitimacy they no longer trouble to claim Reason they have shrugged off What absorbs them is power and the stupor of power Eating and talking munching lives belching Slow heavy bellied talk Sitting in a circle debating ponderously issuing decrees like hammer blows death death death Untroubled by the stench Heavy eyelids piggish eyes shr
