Abstract


This article will analyse the spectacle of Fortuna’s appearance to
Paul Kruger at two crucial points in Grendon’s 1901 epic and
explore the key role she plays in the development of the narrative.
Robert Grendon was the son of a Herero woman and an Irish trader
in the then South West Africa and he was educated at Zonnebloem
College. He taught at Edendale College among other places and was
tutor to the young King Sobhuza of Swaziland. Paul Kruger’s dream
is one of the many works of Grendon’s which were published.
