Abstract

Notes on Jaco Fouché’s novel Die ryk van die rawe

Jaco Fouché’s debut novel Die ryk van die rawe (The domain of the ravens) has been widely acclaimed by critics. Their focus mainly fell on the intertextual relations of the novel with other literary texts, especially novels by Etienne Leroux. This article analyses Fouché’s novel against the backdrop of the (satirical) picaresque tradition and the detective genre. The article focuses on two aspects: Fouché’s indebtedness to (post)modern art forms, particularly comics, graphics, television and cinema; and the interpretation of neo-existentialist philosophy.
