Colby College. English Dept.
This thesis is about movement as a way in which to symbolically and literally discuss our contemporary condition: movement as a way to avoid the self, a way to come in contact with the self, a way to view the tumultuous nature of our evolving world system, and a way with which to positively occupy the dislocation that has accompanied it. Includes literary analysis of The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles, Three Journeys by Paul Zweig, and V. by Thomas Pynchon.
