Memory of Snow and of Dust


  • Breyten Breytenbach’s two-fold novel Memory of Snow and of Dust presents the reader with two antagonistic viewpoints regarding origin and lineage.
  • The first part is a young Ethiopian woman’s letter to the foetus growing inside her, the silence of the unborn child embodying the paradoxical aspects of writing when it comes to tackling the notion of birth.
  • The foetus’s father, on the other hand, is a South African of mixed-blood who rejects his own father and tries to transform the father figure into a mere fiction, hence deciding to die under the apartheid regime.
  • The images of birth and death are thus intertwined, origin being treated in a circular rather than a linear mode.
  • This book is used.
  • The dust cover is missing.
