    Paperback ☆ Foe PDF/EPUB ☆ Foe EpubIt seems a lifetime ago that I read Robinson Crusoe and I can hardly remember anything from it other than knowing it's obvious storyline of a guy being marooned on an island I wondered whether or not it would make any difference in regards to reading Foe In the end it didn't really matter as I found this messy re working not that special anyway Of the four Coetzee novels I've now read Foe I found to be the weakest It's a clever idea giving the classic a deconstructionist turn by adding new characters and including the original author himself with his disputed reactions and shrewd wisdo

    Paperback ☆ Foe PDF/EPUB ☆ Foe EpubIn recent readings of Coetzee's Defoe pastiche I have become facinated with the figure of Friday's empty mouth Obviously the open O the unvoiced scream the signs arranged on the beach as evidence of Friday's voice as it is both silenced and withheld speaks to the trope of subaltern That said I believe Coetzee is interested in our assumption that Friday is without a speech organ tongue less Recall that the only evidence of this tonguelessness comes from the travel narrative that Crusoe gives where he imagines Friday's suffering at the hands of slave traders and other savages as well in each instance of Susan's quest to see the stub the remains she turns away from what she imagines will be too physical and too evocative fleshy remnants What does it mean that we fill in the gap in the gape? Friday is tongueless because we agree to the imagining protocol that na

    Paperback ☆ Foe PDF/EPUB ☆ Foe EpubThis book is sheer poetry The language the pacing the images a feast for the mindAs I see it Coetzee is the most important writer of our times It is almost ridiculous to praise his style as the way he formulates the questions and ideas of his writing is so perfectly self contained and self explanatory Unaffected simplicity and clarity translate into utmost sophisticationAt the centre of his work lies the idea of compassion for animals for the

    Paperback ☆ Foe PDF/EPUB ☆ Foe Epub Foe reminds me of Robert Coover's multilayered metafictional Spanking the Maid than of Robinson Crusoe That book was about spanking and this book is about getting ravished But what's it really about you ask and I'm like ugh isn't multilayered and metafictional enough? Fine god I'll mark serious spoilers but we'll discuss general plot points so heads upOn the first layer Susan Barton is marooned on an island already inhabited by two other castaways When she is rescued she tries to sell her story There are mysteries one of the other castaways is mute Supposedly his tongue was cut out but
