Annotation

Focuses on the book’s treatment of lost pastoral vision and failed redemption. Putnam discusses the sense of dividedness that marks the text at all levels, specifically the narrative’s conflicting desires to revere the African landscape while at the same time to conquer and destroy it. Concludes that the sojourner turns hunter under the ceaseless pressure of time.
