After examining the nations political history and four earlier landmark works, the study examines the oppressed peoples moods, ranging from loving to attacking- the oppressors attitudes, ranging from ignorance to action- and the contradictory forecasts the literature offers for South Africa. The study scrutinizes works in numerous genres by thirty-one authors (8 white- 23 non-white). Among them are J.M. Coetzee, Nadine Gordimer, Dennis Brutus, Bessie Head, Mazisi Kunene, Oswald Mtshali, and Mongane Wally Serote.
