Njabulo S. Ndebele's essays on South African literature and culture
initially appeared in various publications in the 1980s. They
encompass a period of trauma, defiance, and change the decade of
the collapse of apartheid and the challenge of reconstructing a
future. In 1991, the essays were collected under the current title
of Rediscovery of the Ordinary: Essays on South African Literature
and Culture. Here, this collection is reprinted without revision,
together with an interview provoked by Albie Sachs paper Preparing
Ourselves for Freedom. That it is possible to republish the essays
without revision so many years after their first appearance is a
tribute to Ndebele's prescience. The issues that he raises and the
questions that he poses remain key to a people who, after
apartheid, have started to rediscover the complex ordinariness of
living in a civil society.
