Stranger Shores: Literary Essays 1986-1999 by J. M. Coetzee

Two-time Booker Prize-winner J. M. Coetzee is one of the worlds greatest novelists. This thought-provoking collection gathers twenty-six of his essays on books and writing. In his opening piece, What Is a Classic?, Coetzee asks, What does it mean in living terms to say that the classic is what survives? He explores the answer by way of T. S. Eliot, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Zbigniew Herbert. Coetzee goes on to discuss eighteenth- and nineteenth-century authors such as Defoe and Turgenev, the German modernists such as Rilke, Kafka, and Musil, and the giants of late-twentieth-century literature, among them Brodsky, Gordimer, Rushdie, and Lessing.
