Abstract                                         

This paper tries to explore the vision of historical transfer as the black culture once again found its roots in South Africa. Prophetically The Conservationist is situated at the point where white history ends and black history resumes, that is, the rise of the Black Consciousness era in the 1970s South Africa. It also investigates the dilemma of survival and alienation which the progressives faced in the 1970s South Africa. Influenced by the Black Consciousness Movement, which emphasized a return to black cultural roots and traditions, Gordimer employs Zulu myth to create a buried logic of fictional events on the farm. The dead body’s burial reasserts the social and moral values of the submerged African proletariat. The black dead man is incorporated within the community and the land from which they have been dispossessed. Here, Gordimer prophesies the eventual repossession of South Africa by the blacks: the dispossessed black communities of Highveld Transvaal will inherit the world they have lost.

Key Words:  Nadine Gordimer, Culture, Zulu, reincarnation, burial, dispossession.
