Beschreibung

This book addresses the representation of masculinities in the work of J. M. Coetzee, with a particular focus on the writer's trilogy: Boyhood (1997), Youth (2002) and Summertime (2009). Provocatively dealing with questions of autobiography, Coetzee's trilogy provides a panoramic view of a man's development through various stages of life.


Autorentext

Daniel Matias holds a PhD in cultural studies from the New University of Lisbon. With a background in psychology, his research interests are located in the intersection of gender and postcolonial studies, with a focus on the formation of subjectivities and democratic masculinities. He works as a psychotherapist in private practice.



Zusammenfassung
"This is a rigorous, and magnificently argued, reading of J. M. Coetzee's trilogy Drawing on a complex set of theories from post-colonial studies and gender studies to psychoanalysis and philosophy, backed up by a sustained and well-informed historical contextualisation, Matias provides us with a renewed approach to a fascinating and complex author and some of his works, that combines rigorous scholarship with a pleasurable and entertaining reading." -Manuela Ribeiro Sanches, Centre for Comparative Studies, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, University of Lisbon
