Journey Into Barbary: Travels Across Morocco

Journey Into Barbary: Travels Across Morocco Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the spring and summer of 1931, Wyndham Lewis traveled to Morocco. Escaping the furor that surrounded the publication of his controversial book on Hitler, while in Morocco, Lewis explored the culture of the Berbers of Morocco. In Journey into Barbary, Lewis provides a first-hand look into the people and culture of the region. While uncomfortable and direct at times, Lewis goes beyond the typical stereotypes of the Berber people and produces a book unlike any other for this period. Journey into Barbary is a unique look of Morocco in the 1930s as well as of Europes involvement and attitudes toward the region.

About the Author

Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957) was a painter, co-founder of the Vorticist Movement, and writer. His most well-known novels include The Revenge for Love and Tarr, as well as a major work of fiction, The Human Age. He served in France during World War I and his subsequent paintings of war earned him a place as one of the early twentieth century's most dynamic artists.
