AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'They are often referred to as diasporics or cosmopolitans. Both concepts emphasize the relationship between the subject and the world, thereby diluting the connection between Coetzee and the region of South Africa and the group of Afrikaners in South Africa. A close reading of Coetzee's autobiographical novels reveals that although Coetzee once experienced "identity drifting" and once intended to emulate Eliot and Pound and other literary masters to construct a global citizenship, his understanding of cosmopolitanism, global citizenship, and local and world The understanding of the relationship between them has undergone obvious changes, and their identity positioning has also been adjusted accordingly, from the initial rejection of the Afrikaans identity to the Afrikaans identity. This identity implies Coetzee's ethical awareness of the fact that he is a descendant of colonists. Putting the issue of Coetzee's identity in the context of his understanding of "cosmopolitanism" and analyzing it can help us form multidimensional thinking about Coetzee's identity ethics and "cosmopolitanism".' (Publication abstract)
