The Congo is Within Us. Inner Landscapes with Poetical Expressions and Political Effects in Albert Sánchez Piñol's 'Pandora al Congo
The Congo, with its vast tropical forests and gloomy landscapes, became the symbol of African topography due to the immense adventure and travel literature that enjoyed increasing popularity since the last third of the 19th century, helping to form the structures of European imagination in the epoch of colonialism. European modernity, in which solid administrations and more or less established borders of nation states defined the norms of individual behavior, left no place for the type of chivalrous adventures poeticized in the medieval epics and novels of the early modern age. This exciting spirit could only find expression on a continent where the European hero takes up his perceived right to suppress chaos by establishing his own order.
