Críticas:

[An] excellent new book ... Wilm shows that [Coetzee's] books "go beyond the mere provision of philosophical topics" and reveal their import through an act of "slow reading". * Times Literary Supplement * By elaborating an approach that is at once both intriguingly conventional (slow reading) and excitingly innovative (slow philosophising), Wilm's work constitutes a nuanced addition to the burgeoning field of Coetzee Studies, making the monograph exemplary of the work of that which Coetzee terms the `truly creative critic'. * Brief Encounters * "Slowness is Beauty": Pound's Cantos echo Binyon's dictum and turn it into a modernist motto. Jan Wilm's alert and thoughtful book energizes the motto by joining fictional syntax and philosophical meditation in patient analyses of the manuscripts. The craft of slowness is shown to underpin the work of Coetzee as he rethinks high modernism. The point is to frustrate a naive wish to rush to conclusions or reach simple ideas about life, ethics and aesthetics. By learning to read more slowly, we read up on a dauntingly complex world, letting its beauty shine while discriminating between equivocal values. * Jean-Michel Rabate, University of Pennsylvania, USA * Since the publication of Elizabeth Costello (2003), a lively conversation has developed around Coetzee in philosophy, and philosophy in Coetzee. Jan Wilm brings a new dimension to this debate in The Slow Philosophy of J.M. Coetzee, showing in a series of refreshing readings how the philosophical and the literary come together in a single experience of slow reading. Both erudite and accessible, and drawing fresh insights from Coetzee's archive, Wilm provides an original account of the Nobel laureate's distinctively meditative fiction. * David Attwell, University of York, UK * Joining advocates for slow food and slow cinema, Wilm (Goethe Univ. Frankfurt, Germany) offers a challenging proposal for "slow philosophy" as seen in the work of South African Nobel Prize novelist J. M. Coetzee. In critiquing Coetzee's work, Wilm provides a slow-reading methodology that can be adapted to reading in general. The author sets out his goals in his lively introduction: to explore "how Coetzee's oeuvre probes the functions and effects of slowness" and how it "bears on the characters' and ... the readers' reflections." To accomplish this, Wilm delves into Coetzee's prose style, examining the ways in which Coetzee deploys syntax, dialogue, rhetorical questions, gaps in the narrative, metafiction, and ambiguous endings to slow the reader's progress through the text and to engender meditation and meaning making. The novels that receive particular attention are Disgrace, Foe, Life and Times of Michael K, Slow Man, and Coetzee's fictionalized memoir trilogy (Boyhood, Youth, and Summertime). The persuasiveness of Wilm's arguments is bolstered by his extensive use of Coetzee's own notebooks and drafts, housed in the archives of the University of Texas. These documents enable Wilm to trace the deliberations and revisions Coetzee makes as a writer, his slowness of method. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty. * CHOICE *

Reseña del editor:

In The Slow Philosophy of J.M. Coetzee Jan Wilm analyses Coetzee's singular aesthetic style which, he argues, provokes the reader to read his works slowly. The effected 'slow reading' is developed into a method specifically geared to analyzing Coetzee's singular oeuvre, and it is shown that his works productively decelerate the reading process only to dynamize the reader's reflexion in a way that may be termed philosophical. Drawing on fresh archival material, this is the first study of its kind to explore Coetzee's writing process as already slow; as a program of seemingly relentless revision which brings forth his uniquely dense and crystalline style. Through the incorporation of material from drafts and notebooks, this study is also the first to combine an exploration of the writer's stylistic choices with a rigorous analysis of the reader's responses. The book includes close readings of Coetzee's popular and lesser known work, including Disgrace, Waiting for the Barbarians, Elizabeth Costello, Life and Times of Michael K and Slow Man.
