Abstract: This paper examines the role of imaginative literature in offering insights into various peace-oriented conflict resolution methods. Through a critical analysis of three short stories set in a dystopian Zimbabwean context of extreme difficulties, the paper argues that hope is ubiquitous and fictions of our time offer subtle and strategic pointers to probable solutions. Through the presentation of the lived experiences of ordinary citizens, the short stories analysed ultimately point to a realisable vision of the future which has pointers which are suggestive of life beyond survival.
