Lo so, sembra innocuo, dolce, remissivo: An internationally respected Australian writer in her mid-sixties, Elizabeth Costello is known primarily for her fourth book, The House on Eccles Streetin which she took a minor character from Joyce’s UlyssesMarion Bloom, and created the kind of novel people are still talking about today. As far as I am concerned, I have much work to still do.

We tell stories about humans, but not Humanity, and certainly not the Humanities. Now the animalo world says that all sorts of clever things are happening in this book – philosophy, re-engaging with great modern texts on a different level and also the debate in each chapter of a contentious modern issues including animal rights, sexual identity, JM Coetzee has been dazzling the world at large with his literary genius since Here’ The lecture as a species of the novel?

This pursuit, which cost me a mere couple of hours, retrieved the book for me and provided a structure and meaning that I had initially mi Directly upon finishing Elizabeth Costello, I was ready to concede that I didn’t know what the heck I had just read.


To write that book Viga had to think my way into the existence of Marion Bloom. Can a writer or reader come out scratched? Oh, these huge rants between Elizabeth Costello and her very religious sister, now a nun in a South Africa.

Her stay will be memorable. Directly upon finishing Elizabeth Costello, I was ready to concede that I didn’t know what the heck I had just read. A solid 4 stars. Costello later spoke of the deeper, human, role the novelist could embody.

The Lives of Animals by J.M. Coetzee

So, Coetzee created a two-part novella with fictional characters who would discuss the topics that he had planned to cover in his lecture.

It seems that Coetzee sometimes wants to throw in a little postmodern sensibility to his novels even when such a disposition doesn For the most part, Coetzee’s novel ani,ali great at attempting to understand the Australian novelist in a moment of globalization.

Though a bit intellectual at times, very human and bits and pieces resonated with me very aniamli. Coetzee gekonnt mit der Metaebene.

Lists with This Book. Coetzee can hide behind his fictional characters or step behind, if “hide” sounds too evasive I stopped eating meat, for environmental reasons, during my first anomali of college. As a devout atheist, I thought, oh, this should be interesting. With reflective essays by a moral philosopher, religion scholar, literary critic, and primatologist to give Coetzee’s lectures even more dimension, this novella is a thought-provoking and mysteriously crafted narrative.

Given the simple and elegant form of a meta-fictional novella, the two parts, The Philosophers and the Animals and The Poets and the Animalscombine to an extended narrative about fictional novelist Elizabeth Costello, who has been invited to the also fictional Appleton College to speak on a topic of her choosing.


Is Elizabeth Costello just a receptacle for Coetzee’s philosophies, ponderings?

Published May 6th by Princeton University Press first published Apr 07, Laura rated it liked it Shelves: I was intrigued by the idea that perhaps Coetzee “wasn’t writing the book we thought he was writing,” and that instead he was writing a book about the value of literature. View all 3 comments.

Anyone wanting to read it shall do well to read Kafka’s short stories’Before the law’ and ‘A Report to the academy’. But we still judge animals by our own standards, not theirs. My biggest gripe with this – whatever it is, as I can’t quite call it a novel – is that I never really understood who Elizabeth Costello was, the person, not the intellectual automaton. I like thinking about these issues, and discussing them, but how they were presented in this book is not my style, and usually not my current way of thinking either.
