Abstract: »This idea also has parallels in Sorcha Gunne's chapter on South African fiction, 'Questioning Truth and Reconciliation: Writing Rape in Achmat Dangor's Bitter Fruit and Kagiso Lesego Molope's Dancing in the Dust'. Focusing in detail on Dangor's and Molope's novels, Gunne considers the alternative meanings of speech and silence that are manifest in post-apartheid narratives in the wake of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission.« Feminism, Literature and Rape Narratives: Violence and Violation.
