9780140122121: The Essential Gesture: Writing, Politics and Places

Selected from over 160 titles this is an anthology of non-fiction writings by one of South Africa's most respected writers and author of the Booker Prizewinner "The Conservationist". She also wrote "Burger's Daughter", "July's People" and "A Sport of Nature". The editor of this collection explains in his introduction that the essays illustrate the relationship between outer and inner change for the writer of conscience in South Africa. From the relative optimism of the 1950s to Sharpeville and the banning of the ANC to the challenges of the black consciousness movement in the 1970s and the "interregnum" of the 80s, Gordimer rigorously analyzes political events. Her stand on censorship is unequivocal and her commitment to the community of writers - black and white - is forthright.
