AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Created the images of two crazy colonists in different backgrounds. In Coetzee's writing, the colonization of South Africa by the Dutch colonists and the invasion of Vietnam by the American Empire have homogeneity and historical continuity. The novel aims to refute the theory of colonial civilization, deconstruct the hegemonic masculinity of the colonists, and challenge the mythological logic of the colonists, thereby subverting the colonial myths constructed and peddled by Western culture for centuries, exposing the false narrative of colonial power discourse, and leading the world Re-examine and reflect on the history of colonialism. Coetzee intervenes in history through creation, resists and rewrites colonial historical discourse with unique text structure and personalized narrative techniques, highlighting the importance of novels in participating in historical narratives. It is of great practical significance to reread "The Darklands" at a time when the remnants of imperialism are still alive.' (Publication abstract)
