About the Authors
  • Nobel Laureate J. M. Coetzee is amongst the most acclaimed and widely studied of contemporary authors. The Cambridge Companion to J. M. Coetzee provides a compelling introduction for new readers, as well as fresh perspectives and provocations for those long familiar with Coetzee's works. All of Coetzee's published novels and autobiographical fictions are discussed at  length, and there is extensive treatment of his translations, scholarly books and essays, and volumes of correspondence. Confronting Coetzee's works on the grounds of his practice, the chapters address his craft, his literary relations and horizons, and the relationship between his writings  and other arts, disciplines and institutions. Written by an international team of contributors, this Companion offers a comprehensive introduction to this important  writer, establishes new avenues of discovery, and  explains Coetzee's undiminished ability to challenge and surprise his readers with inventive works of striking power and intensity.

    • Provides a thorough introduction to the writings of J. M. Coetzee
    • Approaches Coetzee's corpus on the grounds of his practice and relations
    • Provides critical engagements with recent trends in Coetzee scholarship, by addressing translation, adaptation, philosophy, archives and life writing
