Abstract [en]

This essay focuses on the idea of the inner landscape as a source of artistic and creative freedom in the mind of the protagonist of the novel Fear of flying, Isadora Wing. Isadora wishes to be a writer but is hindered by the imposing wills of family, society, cultural norms and her own feelings of inadequacy. In order to free herself from these wills she goes through a cathartic journey which involves an extra-marital affair and culminates in finding peace of mind. This essay analyses how the novel portrays how one can be a creative force in spite of conflicting impositions that would stop one from being a writer.
