[en] Janet Frame ; Jan Godfrey ; Authorial Sacrifice; Negative Capability; Art
[en] This essay examines Janet Frame’s “Jan Godfrey” with a view to demonstrating that its
author-figure writes a story that is not a story as long as she hesitates to grant her (re-)
created Other full access to the speaking position she occupies. The idea explored in “Jan Godfrey,”
that non-stories of avoidance are in fact narratives of ontological decimation will, then, be
shown to tie in with Frame’s belief that true art occurs at the edge of non-being.
