    Paperbackî Foe ePUB ì Foe EpubIt seems a lifetime ago that I read Robinson Crusoe and I can hardly remember anything from it other than knowing it's obvious storyline of a guy being marooned on an island I wondered whether or not it would make any difference in regards to reading Foe In the end it didn't really matter as I found this messy re working not that special anyway Of the four Coetzee novels I've now read Foe I found to be the weakest It's a clever idea giving the classic a deconstructionist turn by adding new characters and including the original author himself with his disputed reactions and shrewd wisdom and it's written well enough but when compared to his extraordinarily convincing novels Waiting for the Barbarians disgrace then Foe just isn't on the same island like stuck on a reef The young castaway widow Susan Barton is really central to this parable tale and not Cruso Coetzee omits the e from his name who is an irascible lazy imperious man who has li

    Paperbackî Foe ePUB ì Foe EpubIn recent readings of Coetzee's Defoe pastiche I have become facinated with the figure of Friday's empty mouth Obviously the open O the unvoiced scream the signs arranged on the beach as evidence of Friday's voice as it is both silenced and withheld speaks to the trope of subaltern That said I believe Coetzee is interested in our assumption that Friday is without a speech organ tongue less Recall that the only evidence of this tonguelessness comes from the travel narrative that Crusoe gives where he imagines Friday's suffering at the hands of slave traders and other savages as we
