Abstract:In this article, the renowned South African playwright, Athol Fugard, offers an overview of his writing life and of the experiences and attitudes which gave birth to his plays. He reflects back on his career which, to date, spans just over five decades, in terms of a 'Literary journey' marked by 'milestones', a concept that he uses to denote his plays. The millstones are a loose metaphor for the rulings of the apartheid dispensation that drew lines between South African citizens in terms of 'colour', but the article is quick to qualify this metaphor, when viewed retrospectively.
