The subject of motherhood is interwoven with themes of survival,
power and identity. It is also at the heart of any consideration of
women's writing. Conversations of motherhood sensitively charts
common themes, intersecting experiences and related topics within
the cultural specificities of South African society. The author
comparatively explores seminal novels by South African authors
written in English and Afrikaans from the 1970s to 2010 through the
prism of motherhood. Drawing on the work of theorist Mikhail
Bakhtin, this book develops a transcultural approach to the study
of literature and literary culture in postcolonial multilingual
societies. This method offers striking rewards when comparatively
pairing Zoe Wicomb with Pamphilia Hlapa, Sindiwe Magona with
Marlene van Niekerk, Ellen Kuzwayo with Antjie Krog and Elsa
Joubert with Wilma Stockenstrom.
