Description:

In this article, the writer studies the popular book by South African author Herman Charles Bosman, called 'Unto Dust'. The writer notes that this is an interesting story of authentic South African characters, told by an experienced and visually stimulating South African author. The writer discusses that the diction, plot, setting and the images of which Bosman creates throughout the story are the factors which lead to the response of the reader. The writer concludes that these factors together with the attitude of Oom Stoffel's racist mind and Oom Schalk Lourens' easily-influenced personality play a major role in the story and they create the impression in the reader's mind.

From the Paper:

"The narrator of the story is Oom Schalk Lourens. His narration is very interesting because he is telling the story which Oom Stoffel Oosthuizen told him. The diction, plot, setting and the images of which he creates throughout the story are the factors which lead to the response of the reader. These factors together with the attitude of Oom Stoffel's racist mind and Oom Schalk Lourens' easily-influenced personality play a major role in the story, and they create the impression in the reader's mind."
"The story starts by Oom Schalk Lourens comparing the difference of the funerals between the youth and the elderly."
