dc.description.abstract A literary-historical model is used to approach the post-modernist text "Suidpunt-jazz". Van Gorp's interaction-directed model for writing literary history is taken as a point of departure. This is complemented by Ena Jansen's reaction to Vodi�a on the writing of literary history, and also by certain of T. T. Cloete's ideas. From the above framework, three sets of tasks are identified: the origin of the text; the functioning of the text in its context; and the reception of the text. For the study of "Suidpunt-jazz", certain indicators are taken from the text as literary points of departure, and are then studied against a wider philosophical, historical, political, social and literary background. The indicators include: the construction of worlds; breaching the boundaries between these worlds; worlds under erasure; "suidpunt" and "jazz". It is concluded that "Suidpunt-jazz" (and post-modernist fiction in general) is, above all, illusion breaking art, and that a model for the writing of literary history can indeed be an illuminating approach to post-modernist texts. en
