"The Story of An African Farm": In writing the first great South African novel, Olive Schreiner drew on childhood memories on the isolated African veld to fashion a powerful indictment of the rigid Boer and English conventions of her day. This 1883 best seller was greeted with both praise and condemnation for its feminist views on women's status and on marriage, and for its unorthodox critique of dishonesty and hypocrisy in the doctrines and practices of "respectable" Christian church people.
