Lecture and Speech of Acceptance Upon the Award of the Nobel Prize in Literature, Delivered in Stockholm in December 2003

COETZEE, J. M.

Regular price $150.00 Sale

Novelist J. M. Coetze, winner of the Nobel prize for literature in 2003, used the literary persona of Robinson Crusoe to deliver his Nobel acceptance lecture in December of that year. The lecture was actually a short story, which imagines the life of Crusoe after his return to Britain. Intriguing and enigmatic, the story must have puzzled the Stockholm audience. Read it for yourself and offer your own interpretation.
