English Title: Schwellnus’s and Franz’s authorship: The period of the writings of the German missionaries

English Abstract

An analysis of two series of readers reveals a focus on two key themes: the history of the Northern Sotho people in Padisho III, and on Northern Sotho culture in Padisho IV. Schwellnus suggests that a society’s life is rooted in its history and that a society’s culture is its heritage. In Franz’s two dramas, Maaberone and Modjadji, he looks at the importance of modernity, focusing on the freedom of women and the concepts of modernity and culture relating to the lives of people in Northern Sotho society in general, and Balobedu society in particular. Both texts are important sources on traditional and modern lifestyles.
