In the spring and summer of 1931, Wyndham Lewis travelled to the westernmost part of the Berber heartland in Morocco, known traditionally as 'Barbary'. Wanting to avoid what he called 'the Baedekered blight' of Anglo-American tourism, he set out for the majestic High Atlas mountains with pens and watercolours to record, in words and images, the rich traditional culture and changing face of the wild, isolated Berber tribes who carved a harsh life out of Morocco's remotest regions. The result is a blend of two arts, the literary skill of a detached and humorous observer, mixed with the drawings of one of the 20th century's most exciting and original artists. Through the eyes of a creative genius, Journey into Barbary is both an inimitable portrait of Morocco and one of the first truly modern accounts of a country that had for so long remained an enigma to generations of travellers

Journey into Barbary : travels across Morocco by Wyndham Lewis( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the spring and summer of 1931, Wyndham Lewis travelled to Morocco. Escaping the furore that surrounded the publication of his controversial book on Hitler, Lewis also intended to explore the culture of the Berbers of Morocco. Lewis' text predates the ascent of Amazigh national consciousness in the late 20th century and his repeated play on the words Berber, Barbary, and barbarism reveals an important element of his attitude toward the Berber people. While avoiding labelling them as primitive, he associates them with strong practices of barbarian rule that at once contrast the enervation of European modernity and suggest a path by which Europe might revive itself. While his tone may be uncomfortable at times, he actually rejects and discredits all the familiar stereotypes of Oriental exoticism - unusual for a book of this period

"Death of a Hero", published in 1929 was the author's literary response to the war. He went on to publish several works of fiction. In 1942, having moved to the United States, he began to write biographies. This last work was very controversial, as it was highly critical of the man still regarded as a war hero
