review Foe author J.M. Coetzee J.M. Coetzee À 6 characters Foe author J.M. Coetzee free read  6 With the same electrical intensity of language and insight that he brought to Waiting for the Barbarians JM Coetzee reinvents the story of Robinson Crusoe and in so doing directs our attention to the seduction and tyranny of storytelling itselfIn 1720 the eminent man of lette NOTES IN THE MARGINFootprints in the Sand of TimeHello You don t know me I bought your book online I don t know your name I don t even know whether you re dead or alive You made notations in the margin I noticed them straight away some were in pencil some later when I looked were in pen although they might have been made by someone else We started to note similar things and make similar comments After a while I started to make fewer comments because I was content with yours Either that or I started to think like you to walk in your footsteps I m a reader like you You re a reader like me Reader Like me Please Whoever you are I don t think there are many of us around Let me know if you get this message In the meantime I ll try to write a review I hope it s an OK one I hope we like it NOTES FROM THE MARGINFriend or Foe Foe raises fascinating metafictional ideas in a text that is just as economical 157 pages as it is intellectually and aesthetically stimulatingIt s a postmodern reconstruction of Robinson Crusoe that asks uestions about empire and colonialism slavery and dominion history and fictional narrative especially its ownership What is the story about Whose story or perspective is it Who is telling the story Who owns the story that resultsPlantation and uotation MarksCoetzee tells his tale in four partsThe first is wholly contained in uotation marks It purports to be the perspective of Susan Barton incidentally a character from a subseuent Daniel Defoe novel Roxana who in Foe ends up on the island with Cruso sic and Friday whose tongue has been cut out by slaversThe second is largely epistolary being the letters written by Susan Barton to Foe trying to get him to write her story for publication Again this section is in uotation marksThe third is an almost Borgesian confrontation between Susan and Foe which begins The staircase was dark and mean There are no uotation marks around the sectionHistory and HeritageThe fourth begins with the words The staircase is dark and mean It mimics the beginning of the previous section but in present tense there are no uotation marks however it s not clear whether the narrator is actually Susan Barton or whether the author of this section is the same author as any or all of the previous sections It s uite possible that this author is a contemporary writer or reader ie us who is visiting Defoe s home complete with heritage plaue It s as if the narrator is a visitor to the home narrating their experience in the physical space as well as their imaginary extrapolation of events that could have taken place here three centuries beforeDying to Tell the TaleThe bulk of the first three sections explores the power relationship between Cruso and Susan Eventually it becomes clear that she will have to tell or commission the telling of his andor their story The second option necessitates the involvement of Foe who de authenticises the tale in order to make it entertaining and commercially successfulNot only does this dialectic raise issues about control and ownership of the narrative it dramatises a power struggle between two gendersFriday on My MindJust as Susan recognises her own need and desire to communicate increasingly her own perspective comes to focus on the plight of Friday this is not a place of wordsThis is a place where bodies are their own signs It is the home of FridayHe has no tongue therefore he cannot speak He knows little English and presumably cannot write Therefore apparently he has no capacity to contribute his version of the story in other words a black version of historySusan starts to teach Friday how to write in the third sectionAs if the issues raised in section four aren t enough I wondered whether Friday might have written the entire novelThus there is a sense in which the book can be read as a post colonial work that gives voice not just to non whites but simultaneously to women In any event just as it subverts the authorial conventions of literature it subverts the social conventions of white male authoritarianismFriday I m in LoveThis review might make the novel sound very academic The truth however is that it s exuisitely written Not one word is surplus or out of place It consumes our imagination so effectively that we don t need any distraction However having achieved its goal it remains a distraction for the reader I m sure the previous reader would agree with me SOUNDTRACKThe Cure Friday I m In Love I don t care if Cruso s blueAuthor s gray and readers tooDefoe I don t care about youCoz Friday I m in lovehttpswwwyoutubecomwatchvmGgMZThe Easybeats Friday On My Mind Bowie Friday On My Mind Floyd See Emily Play

review Foe author J.M. Coetzee J.M. Coetzee À 6 characters Foe author J.M. Coetzee free read  6 Rs Daniel Foe is approached by Susan Barton lately a castaway on a desert island She wants him to tell her story and that of the enigmatic man who has become her rescuer companion master and sometimes lover Cruso Cruso is dead and his manservant Friday is incapable of speech In Foe Susan Barton is set adrift in a rowboat after a mutiny on a ship sailing from South America to Lisbon She lands on an island where Cruso and Friday had been cast away years ago In Coetzee s retelling of the Robinson Crusoe tale Cruso is content with his simple life on the island Friday has been transformed from a Caribbean to a black African whose tongue had been cut out by slave owners The three castaways are rescued after Susan has spent one year on the island but Cruso dies on his way back to Europe Susan wants to write their story so she contacts the author Daniel Foe to turn her narration into a book But Foe wants to tell a different story about Susan than the one she thinks is important Susan is also disturbed about Friday s lack of a voice Although Friday has been liberated from slavery he cannot ever really be free with no voice The theme seems to be that the oppressed and disadvantaged have been silenced and lost the authorship of their own storiesJM Coetzee was writing in 1986 in South Africa where communication problems and cultural differences existed between the black Africans and white colonialists The original Crusoe story was a fictional autobiography and adventure story with 17th Century ideas about colonialism gender and slavery Coetzee has updated the tale by adding a woman narrator an African servant and a 20th Century outlook
