Chronique d'une impossible transition : transformation et résistance au changement dans les romans récents de Nadine Gordimer (1980 à 1995)

Abstract : The years between 1980 and 1995 delineate one of the most fascinating transition periods of the end of the Twentieth Century. This thesis examines the political and social changes and their effects on the individual and on the group through four of the novels by one of that country's foremost writers, Nobel Prize winner in literature (1991), Nadine Grodimer. In addition to the reciprocal influences operating between text and context, this transversal study analyses transformation and resistance to change in such postcolonial areas as identity, place and sense of belonging, as well as the more universal concerns of belief systems and interpersonal relationships. Gordimer's writing, with its narratological density and its wealth of imagery and intertextual references, provides fertile ground for the study of the subject chosen.
