Abstract

Antjie Krog’s Country of My Skull (1998), A Change of Tongue (2003), and Begging to Black (2009) attempt to transform a postcolonial white beneficiary subject through the construction of an “I” that revises rather than reprises the sovereign agency usually associated with Western subjectivity. This iterational form of postcolonial autobiography moves from anti-colonial longing to postcolonial becoming as it rewrites developmental narrative form.
