The Roving Eye

  • Patricia Laurence
Part of the Literary Lives book series (LL)


This chapter focuses on Bowen’s visual imagination that led to her progressive interest in the new media that became a key part of the texture of her writing. The still shots of photography, montage of films and the shadows, dreams and collage of the new art movement of surrealism, as well as her continued interest in painting contribute to a new consciousness that informs her narrative modes.
