- KurzbeschreibungJ.M. Coetzee once said: The standard is the body. <br>Whatever else, the body is not ''that which is not'', <br>and the proof that it is is the pain that it feels. <br>[...] it is not that one grants authority to the <br>suffering body: the suffering body takes this <br>authority: that is its power. Using this statement <br>as a departure point this book examines how the <br>suffering body functions as a deconstructive trope <br>in J.M. Coetzee s novels Waiting for the Barbarians <br>and Age of Iron. It has been argued that it is <br>impossible to find a space outside discourse where <br>one can create a true counter-discursive narrative. <br>However, this reading claims that the trope of the <br>suffering body acts as counter-discourse regardless <br>of these issues because its efforts rest not on <br>language, but on silence. The study makes use of a <br>deconstructive theoretical basis and narrative <br>analysis to refute previous claims both within the <br>critical reception of J.M. Coetzee s works and <br>within the field of post-colonial studies. The study <br>should be of interest to anyone who is <br>looking for an original approach to one of the most <br>complex and critically acclaimed authors of our time.
