dc.description.abstract When I first wrote about the Fish River Bush, a decade or more ago, I was primarily interested in those imperial and colonial representations, constituting a landscape, which served as a text by which to read the ideology of the colonial frontier.' That interest has persisted, and is outlined here, but what has overtaken it is a sense of the persistence of colonial ideology in landscape — the way in which the historically intense moment of the frontier has persisted in latter-day representations of the eastern Cape, as if the landscape, after a century and more, were still encrypted with the codes of identity extended and contested across it back then. en_ZA
