Promotional Information

In the spring and summer of 1931, the author travelled to Morocco. Escaping the furore that surrounded the publication of his controversial book on Hitler, he also intended to explore the culture of the Berbers of Morocco. This title offers an account of Morocco in the '30s as well as of Europe's involvement and attitudes towards it.

About the Author

Original, ferociously witty, controversial, Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957) is celebrated as 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 20th century's most dynamic artists.

Reviews

"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, Observer "The most fascinating personality of our time." T.S. Eliot 'Bears witness to Lewis's vigorous admiration for the character and culture of the Berbers...and to Lewis's unconventional wisdom brought to bear on landscape, architecture and landscape.' TLS
