9780820316093: Forests of Symbols: World, Text & Self in Malcolm Lowry's Fiction

Lowry, a writer caught between romantic and modernist concepts of art and the self, is as well known for his unfinished works as he is for his two novels. McCarthy (English, U. of Miami) addresses the central enigma of Lowry's life: his dependence on writing for his sense of identity, and his fear that writing would leave him with no identity apart from his work.
