Literature is a mirror in which one can see the reflection of life. It introduces new worlds of experience and it is important because it speaks to the readers and it is universal. Among the twentieth century South African writers, Coetzee is an important literary figure. Through his works he reflects the suffering of the South Africans during the apartheid system. This paper focuses on the disgraceful state of characters' in Disgrace because of the lost identity. It also pictures the Whites struggle for existence and individuality.
