J. M. Coetzee’s Foe (1986) is a testament to the limitations of language. In its expression of truth, writing is presented as divine magic.

His performing skills are akin to dexterity in the Capoeira, Candomblé, Calypso, Circumambulation, and Maculelê. He is also empowered to speak his mind through penetrating, aquatic syllables.
