Abstract
The article examines the national and race problem in the works of J.M. Coetzee, the best known South African writer and the holder of Nobel and two Booker prizes. Having lived in South Africa during the period of apartheid, Coetzee tries to find out and understand the historical background of the white domination and interracial relations there. Coetzee’s special attention is focused on the time of colonial conquest in South Africa. Even in his early works Coetzee wrote that the rule of the Afrikaners was not legitimate and would come to the end very soon. He supposes that the whites should bear responsibility for the historical crimes of their ancestry not only in South Africa, but in other countries too. Coetzee believes that in the future all people will “mix” and will be “ethnically indistinguishable, that is to say…Coloured”. He called that the Brazilian future.
