Special Issues

Volume 6 Special Issue 1

Dear Readers and Contributors,

It was a thought that refused to leave me from the moment the journal was started. The thought is to have a special issue exclusively for the works of J M Coetzee. But, then it was just a budding journal learning its first faltering steps. Now, IJELLS is an established and recognised body of research. The time seemed right for starting to trot. This J M Coetzee special issue was something of a trot in that direction. For the first time, we have ventured to go for a print version to understand how the logistics would work out.

I have taken the sole responsibility to edit this issue as J M Coetzee’s work is a major part of my PhD thesis. When I was reading Waiting for Barbarians, I had to put down the book many times, to take a small walk, to recover from the all-gripping narrative. But the small walk led me back to the book.

This is one among many series that I am going to edit on various major contributors to English Literature. Kindly pour in with your suggestions and remember that all the errors that might have crept into the volume are all mine!

Happy Reading!
Dr. Mrudula Lakkaraju
Editor, J M Coetzee Special Issue
