Description de l'ouvrage

16 octobre 2000
This is the moving story of the unforgettable Rosa Burger, a young woman from South Africa cast in the mold of a revolutionary tradition. Rosa tries to uphold her heritage handed on by martyred parents while still carving out a sense of self. Although it is wholly of today, Burger's Daughter can be compared to those 19th century Russian classics that make a certain time and place come alive, and yet stand as universal celebrations of the human spirit. Nadine Gordimer, winner of the 1991 Nobel Prize in Literature, was born and lives in South Africa.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A challenging but ultimately rewarding novel 25 avril 2000
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Nadine Gordimer's prose can be difficult to follow at the initial read, but is full of thought-provoking allusions and is a book you will definitely think about for a long time. In this tale, Burger represents the man who was Nelson Mandela's lawyer in apartheid South Africa. Gordimer follows Burger's daughter as she copes with ties to her homeland, the complicated issue of white and black in South Africa, and with both the persecution and expectations she faces because of her name. Highly recommended!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Finding one's own voice 12 septembre 2000
Par EriKa - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have probably by now read almost everything Gordimer has written in her long and prolific career. I have defended her writing to those who have only dabbled in one or two works and form opinions. Gordimer's works are much more complex than one can dissect in one reading of a particularly book or in a reading of only one of her books.
Burger's Daughter was surprising, as all of Gordimer's works are. Gordimer has mastered the art of voice and gives her characters complex lives and thoughts without resorting to or relying on cliché or expectation. In Burger's Daughter, the protagonist lives a life that was created for her before she was even born. Her father's political activism created circumstances into which she would be born and in which she would be expected to live, much as royalty is born and expected to follow in the monarchy's traditions.
The book traces Burger's daughter through her literal and figurative explorations to find her own voice, which can be the most difficult thing one can do in life, particularly when overshadowed by the voices of everyone around you. This work is quite subtle and although surprising (only because I am always amazed that someone has such talent for breathing life into a page) it is very typical Gordimer. Well worth the time to read it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Richly rewarding novel by Nobel Prize Winner 11 août 2002
Par Ronald Scheer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Until I read this novel, years ago, I had very simplistic views of South Africa. "Burger's Daughter" changed that.
While telling the story of an individual young woman growing up in a well-known activist family and learning to discover her own identity, Gordimer also paints a broad and detailed picture of life in South Africa among those who fought apartheid while Mandela was still in prison.
It is a rich cast of characters, black and white, who find their strength and their joy in their heroic resistance to the government and their civil disobedience. Through them you learn of the complexity of the problems created by apartheid and the range of social issues rooted in a system of racial separatism.
You also learn a great deal about the mindset and courage of those who were free to leave South Africa during those dark days yet chose to stay and fight a well-armed and oppressive foe. And as modern-day South Africa has inherited the legacy of apartheid, the book is as fully relevant today as it was when it was written.
Gordimer packs a lot into this novel; it's not a page turner, but a book that you soak up slowly and deliberately. It is a solid, important book, worthy of a world-class writer and Nobel Prize winner.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 From Berstein to Burger 12 juin 2011
Par J. Smallridge - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have found that many women (including my wife) hate this book with a passion. Initially, I also disliked it because the sentences are so long and the plot just plods along aimlessly. However, after living and working in South Africa and understanding the lives of liberation heroes such as Rusty and Hilda Bernstein, I actually have great respect and admiration for this work. "The Conservationist" is still Gordimer's best long fiction. However, this has to be a close second despite its many often-justifiable criticisms.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Moving and psychologically engaging 10 août 2010
Par Dr Stuart Jeanne Bramhall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Gordimer provides a rare glimpse into the lives of white anti-apartheid activists in South Africa. The many similarities with US leftists under the rightward drift of the Reagan-Bush-Carter-Bush-Obama years are unescapable. Not only is there the alienation of being a minority within a white minority population, but the apartheid regime treats white anti-apartheid activists every bit as brutally as those who are black. Moreover like the French Resistance, organizing has to be done underground, which means work colleagues, friends and neighbors may be totally unaware of your political commitment and activities.

Gordimer brilliantly captures the psychological challenges of such a life. The novel starts as 14 year old Rosa, named after the German revolutionary Rosa Luxemburg, is visiting her mother, who has just been imprisoned. Her mother dies just as her father is imprisoned. He, too, dies prematurely, leaving Rosa to struggle with finding her own identity in the shadow of parents with larger than life personalities. She escapes politics and South Africa by traveling in Europe, but eventually something calls her back. Returning to South Africa, she yearns for the sense of belonging she remembers fondly from the gathering of white and black activists in her parents' home. And she rejoins the movement. Gordimer relates this emotional journey in a way that is both psychologically genuine and profoundly moving.

An added delight of this book is Gordimer's sensuous description of the lush South African landscape.
