Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, LMU Munich (Englische Philologie), course: Proseminar Postcolonial Literature, language: English, abstract: Ever since its publication in 1999, J.M. Coetzee's award-winning novel Disgrace has stirred up a lot of controversy. Its negative depiction of blacks has been seen as an endorsement of white racist stereotypes. In this essay, I first analyze the degree of realism in Disgrace. Second, I assess how Disgrace can be read as a criticism of "New South Africa," a decade after the dismantling of the Apartheid system
