The concept of identity reconstruction by Black South Africans in Coetzee’s “Waiting for the Barbarians” and “Foe”
Jihad Jaafar Waham, Dr. Wan Mazlini Othman
Identity gets away from the limits of personality and human encapsulation. Identity as a subject for investigation and exchange, and as an irate reality for of us, has never been progressively mind boggling and multi-faceted. Reflection on, and mindful reproduction of identity exists one next to the other with shortsighted and antagonistic arrangement. The terms 'Post-Colonial', 'Post-Coloniality' and 'Post-Colonialism' inspire reactions in both the metropole and periphery. Post-Colonial hypothesis has been portrayed as being epistemologically obliged to both post-structuralism and post-modernism. This paper contends that, however identity is an imperiled idea, the distinction of African identity can at present be rescued. The colonial circumstance moved a quandary of identity, have a place and (dis)placement for indigenous individuals whose terrains and regions were seized savagely through destruction. Colonial states dug specifically characters, which worked to confiscate, and overwhelm. The political development of identity and citizenship with the colonial circumstances intentionally kept the indigenous networks suspicious of one another and much isolated. Identity Crisis was the problematic effect of modernization amid Postcolonial time.
