A comprehensive guide with summaries, literary analysis, quizzes and more.


"This paper seeks to proffer different ways of reading Sindiwe Magona’s Mother to Mother. It is intended to be a treatise on possible approaches that may be taken in trying to unpack the novel. In this regard, it is prudent to hastily add that this paper does not seek to be a commentary on the novel. The paper does not aim at being a study guide. It does not try to masquerade as a pedagogical tool for handling the text. This paper merely aims at suggesting ways by which the reading of Mother to Mother may be more fulfilling."
