ABSTRACT
The article focuses on three books — "The Retreat," by P.H. Newby; "The Outsider," by Richard Wright and "Stephania," by Ilona Karmel. "The Retreat," is beautifully written and lucidly organized, carries the reader into a fast-moving, phantasmagoric mental world where under great external stress, profound ambiguities and obscure motivations erupt within character. In "Stephania" central figure Stephania is attractive, intelligent, impervious but is malfigured by a hump-back brought on by a spinal disease.
