Example text

Dutifully, Kumalo visits the house of the girl’s last known employer, who happens to be the niece of James Jarvis’s wife, and the day Kumalo comes to make enquiry, Jarvis happens to be there. When Kumalo sees him he is taken by great fear. Jarvis, for his part, recognizes Kumalo as the parson of Ndotsheni, but does not know that he is the father of the boy who killed his son: —I know you, umfundisi, [Jarvis] said. The suffering in the old man’s face smote him.... Jarvis said to him, not looking at him, there is something between you and me, but I do not know what it is....

Yes, he came. —And what did he say? —He said the child must have milk, inkosana. —And what did the parents say? —They said, Doctor, we have heard what you say. And the small boy said in a small voice, I see. (236–237) On the heels of the boy’s appearance comes the first phase of the miracle, as Kumalo’s prayers for Ndotsheni are answered. That evening, while Kumalo and his family “were having their meal ... ” It is one of the villagers. Kumalo invites him to eat with them. He responds: —No indeed.

This flexible and varied style is now taut, concise, telegrammatic when describing the social dustbin that is Shanty Town; now soaring into pure poetry when evocative of the delights of the South African countryside; now suitably turbid, when weighted with emotional content, and impassioned. Indeed, sometimes we are reading a documentary and sometimes a romance, and the two themes and styles are deftly interwoven in Chapter Nine of Book One, when the repeated question of the woman searching for a home and the equally insistent negatives to her plea sound like a Greek chorus.
