Dambudzo Marechera’s BLACK SUNLIGHT (whole)

Looking out at the world from a regressive PARANOID-SCHIZOID position, to see how consciousness has trapped you in its narrow confines ……
I realize there is a lot of political and social commentary in here as well literary intertextuality. I say this rather impatiently because it’s not what I am interested in.   The underlying emotional structure of the text is more important as it reveals a contrast between conscious reality and a much deeper, more personal and more fundamental level of truth. In fact one is freed from a very mind-confining conscious reality when one enters a paranoid and schizoid state, since then one has the emotional power and distancing to see the civilizing constraints for what they are.
