"The Story of an African Slave Farm" is a novel written by Olive Schreiner, under the pen name Ralph Iron, and published in 1894. The novel portrays the life of a white Afrikaner family living on a farm in South Africa during the 19th century, and the experiences of the black slaves who work on the farm. The story is told from the perspective of a young girl named Lyndall, who lives on the farm with her mother and her uncle. Lyndall is an intelligent and curious child, who questions the social and moral norms of her society, and she is especially troubled by the treatment of the slaves on her family's farm. The slaves are treated harshly by the white owners, who view them as property rather than as human beings. Lyndall is particularly drawn to the slave Waldo, who is intelligent and thoughtful, and who dreams of one day being free. Waldo and Lyndall develop a close friendship, and she begins to see the world from his perspective. The novel is a powerful critique of the system of slavery that existed in South Africa during the 19th century. Schreiner portrays the slaves as complex and fully realized characters, with their own hopes, dreams, and fears. She also exposes the hypocrisy of the white owners, who claim to be Christian and moral, but who treat their slaves with cruelty and indifference.
