ISBN: 9781770104792 Géneros: 12:FA:Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)Sinopsis: &lsquo,Those in the know claim Michael K disembarked from a diesel-smoke-spewing truck one overcast morning, looked around, and without missing a beat, chose a spot where he set down a small bucket (red, burnt and disfigured) that contained an assortment of seedlings, some fisherman&rsquo,s twine and a rudimentary gardening tool &ndash, probably self-made.&rsquo, How is it that a character from literary fiction can so alter the landscapes he touches, even as he &ndash, ,in his self-imposed isolation &ndash, ,seeks to avoid them? How is it that Michael K, bewildered and bewildering, can remain so fragile yet so present, so imposing without attempting to be so? In this response to JM Coetzee&rsquo,s classic masterpiece, Life &, Times of Michael K, Nthikeng Mohlele dabbles in the artistic and speculative in a unique attempt to unpack the dazed and disconnected world of the title character, his solitary ways, his inventiveness, but also to show how astutely Michael K holds up a mirror to those whose paths he inadvertently crosses. Michael K explores the weight of history and of conscience, thus wrestling the character from the confines of literary creation to the frontiers of artistic timelessness._,
