[en] Janet Frame's "Prizes' and 'Royal Icing' ; Postcolonialism
[en] This essay sets out to examine “Prizes” and “Royal Icing” by Janet Frame with a view to reconciling the Edenic chora formed by children with the state of selflessness that critics often define as a post-mortem flux. We shall see, in the end, that Frame’s utopian condition of shared being is not to be located exclusively in ‘that’ world beyond disintegration, for it belongs to ‘this’ world of the living also.
