A fierce, intelligent book so deep, dark and delightful I would need to write one of those exhaustive reviews I usually skim-read or scan for paragraph breaks to do it justice. But right now, I can’t. Let me keep it brief: an aging academic is brought tumbling down after the suspected or implied...Read More

The very opposite of disgrace
Jan 07, 2016 07:36 PMRead
This is the only Coetzee that I have read, and I'll have to admit it has made me want to read his entire oeuvre. A profound work, Disgrace deals with life in post-apartheid South Africa, the question of consequence, the unreliability of language and also catharsis, specifically the catharsis of ...Read More

I love most of Coetzee's work, and I devour him like a woman possessed, and this is by far his best depiction of life in the West.The main protagonist in the book is a professor of literature.JM describes the mad genius of the professor so profusely, that at moments the book becomes addictive.U ...Read More

Man is a social being infected by vices and blessed with virtues. It is the summation of the right and the wrong, the just and unjust deeds he does, his vile and his goodliness that ultimately decide what he leaves behind him, and what kind of a life he leads. Thomas Aquinas laid down, the seven...Read More

J.M Coetzee’s Disgrace is a novel that could make one ponder:-~~ Is a man to be faulted for his libido? This isn’t something that he specifically asked for. He was born with it. What is he supposed to do if not satisfy it in a legal and lawful manner? Castrate himself?~~ Does...Read More

The core idea of this interesting and meaningful book is easy to grasp: the Eastern Cape is still suffering from fears of Apartheid.
