      How does Coetzee talk about metanarrative? Discourse can be about anything. They make as few laws as possible, and they criticize other nations that accumulate volume upon volume of legal literature, their reasoning being that a common man should not be tried under a body of laws so complicated that he cannot be acquainted with all of them or couched in such obscure legal parlance that he cannot understand them. Department of Bieber Studies, anyone?

And given that the consequences of colonialism extended well beyond the actual period of decolonization a lot of people say that these consequences continue even to this dayis it any wonder that writers are still dealing with the legacy of colonialism? At the end the Sons of Light will conquer the whole world, and in this war they will be helped by heavenly hosts; the Sons of Darkness, aided by the devil Belial and his demonic army, and, finally, all wicked ones will be destroyed. Do you have any questions?

      The perception of legal discourses is an act of taking into consideration of a legal discourse; it is insignificant in our context as it is rarely creative of further legally relevant contexts. Three such compositions are written on one scroll: the Manual of Disciplinethe Rule of the Congregation, and the manual of Benedictions. Foucault later theorized that discourse is a medium through which power relations produce speaking subjects. And given that the consequences of colonialism extended well beyond the actual period of decolonization a lot of people say that these consequences continue even to this dayis it any wonder that writers are still dealing with the legacy of colonialism?
