Paul Bowles

The Inner Geography


Wayne Pounds

Contents: Bowles renews traditional American literary motifs and themes particular the use of space as a psychological metaphor and the poe-esque quest for the destruction of the ego. His work criticizes the schizoid dynamics which have fueled the imperialism of the West and, more recently, assimilates Moroccan folk culture to the post-modern sensibility.
