READ ´ Foe by J.M. Coetzee Tow she approaches the author Daniel Foe offering him the story of the island if he will make her rich and famous But Foe is less interested in the history of Robinson Cruso than in the story of Susan B. We must make Friday s silence speak as well as the silence surrounding Friday Daniel Defoe Daniel Foe s novel Robinson Crusoe was Coetzee s childhood favorite novel At first he had thought it was a memoir of the title character In fact Foe published the book as an account of a real castaway The realization that the character was fictional this intermixing of real and fictional had a huge impact on him Besides this novel Coetzee also visited the Robinson Crusoe in the short story he read as Nobel prize acceptance speech He and His Man The theme of which can be summed up in the following uote from Foe Cruso rescued will be a deep disappointment to the world the idea of a Cruso on his island is a better thing than the true Cruso tight lipped and sullen in an alien England That is the case here as well Besides being an adventure novel Defoe s Robinson Crusoe I haven t read the book is a symbol of British Nationalism in its worst form He is the true prototype of the British colonist The whole Anglo Saxon spirit in Crusoe the manly independence the unconscious cruelty the persistence the slow yet efficient intelligence the sexual apathy the calculating taciturnity James JoyceOf course the ideal of an intellectual living an isolated life in Britain with no or little experience of sea and seamen is going to be nowhere near the actual people who might be cast away The Crusoe as Coetzee presented him is not adventurous not at all persistent in his effort to escape doesn t try to start a civilisation had no offers from cannibals for him to refuse and thus prove his nationalism didn t rescue Friday rather bought him was pretty happy in living on an island and doesn t make half as good a storyHowever the book is far than a retelling we have only talked one third of the book The book later goes meta fictional creating a new conversation between real and fiction and fills itself with reflections on the art of story tellinglater fills itself of reflections on the art of story telling When I reflect on my story I seem to exist only as the one who came the one who witnessed the one who longed to be gone a being without substance a ghost beside the true body of Cruso Is that the fate of all storytellers And then the most important theme the silent ones The narrator for the most part is Susan Barton In Coetzee s alternative version it is Susan who brought Crusoe s story to Foe who is present as a character for him to write A voice that disappeared in Foe s book just as the female voices usually disappeared from narratives written by men at that time And she herself lacks the confidence rather choosing to take the passive position of muse who must speak through others view spoiler Do you know the story of the Muse Mr Foe The Muse is a woman a goddess who visits poets in the night and begets stories upon them In the accounts they give afterwards the poets say that she comes in the hour of their deepest despair and touches them with sacred fire after which their pens that have been dry flow When I wrote my memoir for you and saw how like the island it was under my pen dull and vacant and without life I wished that there were such a being as a man Muse a youthful god who visited authoresses in the night and made their pens flow But now I know better The Muse is both goddess and begetter I was intended not to be the mother of my story but to beget it It is not I who am the intended but you hide spoiler

Coetzee Arton How did she earn a living in Brazil Who were the mutineers who marooned her Where is the daughter for whom she claims to have been searching the ends of the earth And how did Friday lose his tongu. In recent readings of Coetzee s Defoe pastiche I have become facinated with the figure of Friday s empty mouth Obviously the open O the unvoiced scream the signs arranged on the beach as evidence of Friday s voice as it is both silenced and withheld speaks to the trope of subaltern That said I believe Coetzee is interested in our assumption that Friday is without a speech organ tongue less Recall that the only evidence of this tonguelessness comes from the travel narrative that Crusoe gives where he imagines Friday s suffering at the hands of slave traders and other savages as well in each instance of Susan s uest to see the stub the remains she turns away from what she imagines will be too physical and too evocative fleshy remnants What does it mean that we fill in the gap in the gape Friday is tongueless because we agree to the imagining protocol that names him as such
