In the Maelstrom of Malcolm Lowry’s Romantic Imagination: The atonement of La Mordida

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

This paper investigates the various literary influences (e.g. Russian, Anglo-American, Nordic, and German) on Malcolm Lowry, tracing back the roots of his bizarre, Romantic imagination. The influence of Walter Benjamin and the Frankfurt School is considered in the vortex of the forthcoming cataclysm of the Second World War. Lowry's La Mordida is analyzed as a way of seeking redemption from crime and punishment and also as a form of atonement for the debts of the past.
