dc.description.abstract This dissertation explores the question of identity in times of violence. In this regard attention is drawn to the significance of the motto and to various inter-texts. The connection between the Afrikaans language, the country of South Africa and the identity of the Afrikaner is scrutinised, but more especially language as a means of communication and tool for the protagonist, who is a poet. His lifestyle, personal safety and place of work are under threat while the rural areas are becoming inaccessible, the city inhospitable and military violence prevails. The question he asks himself, “what is left?”, is used as the premise for an enquiry into identity from a post-colonial and sociological angle. It appears eventually that his search for identity is a highly personal one and Jung’s concept of individuation and the reconciliation of the conscious ego with the unconscious is pursued as the only option and refuge for the protagonist. It is not advocated that Afrikaners turn their back on reality by means of inner or actual emigration, but the implicit recommendation is an enrichment of life with full cognizance of current conditions. en
