    2. Theoretical approaches to Coetzee's writing up to 2003, but clearly more interested in its own theory and concept of writing than it is with lucid examples within Coetzee's texts. Each essay offers some further depth into the novel(s) it discusses, but there's a lot of noise from the theorists that seems to distance the reader from true literary analysis.
