    The Landscapes Within

    by Ben Okri

     

    In 1981, Nigerian author Ben Okri published The Landscapes Within, a novel about a young painter’s life and creative aspirations. This work, in Okri’s own words, “…continued to haunt [him] and trouble [him] through the years, because in its spirit and essence [he] sensed that it was incomplete.”

    Therefore, he published a revised version of this early book, under the title Dangerous Love, in 1996.
