9781780763521: Journey into Barbary: Travels Across Morocco (Tauris Parke Paperbacks)

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 Europe’s 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.

Review:

""Lewis was one of those high-powered, controversial and prophetic figures to whom no one can react with indifference. He was a fellow-traveller with fascism who wrote enthusiastically about Hitler . . . A toughy, you see: a would-be shocker: a braggart. But his eye for the comic surface of things is marvelous.""—Philip Toynbee, The Observer ""The most fascinating personality of our time.""—T.S. Eliot

Book Description I.B.Tauris Co Ltd., United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the spring and summer of 1931, Wyndham Lewis travelled to the westernmost part of the Berber heartland in Morocco, known traditionally as Barbary . Wanting to avoid what he called the Baedekered blight of Anglo-American tourism, he set out for the majestic High Atlas mountains with pens and watercolours to record, in words and images, the rich traditional culture and changing face of the wild, isolated Berber tribes who carved a harsh life out of Morocco s remotest regions. The result is a blend of two arts, the literary skill of a detached and humorous observer, mixed with the drawings of one of the 20th century s most exciting and original artists. Through the eyes of a creative genius, Journey into Barbary is both an inimitable portrait of Morocco and one of the first truly modern accounts of a country that had for so long remained an enigma to generations of travellers.
