Literary Journey: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter


Darby's Literary Journey series recounts her travels through towns and cities used as settings in great books of American 20th century literature. Her first journey followed Truman Capote's In Cold Blood and was recounted episodically on the Another magazine website. The second journey features in this show at Transition and takes her to the Deep South to follow the plot and locations of Carson McCullers' 1940 novel The Night is a Lonely Hunter. The story centres on the experiences of a deaf man, John Singer, and the people he meets in a 1930s mill town and was the first in a string of works by McCullers to give voice to the rejected, forgotten, mistreated and oppressed. Darby's poignant images are accompanied by bursts of her own diaristic text which connect the experiences she has on her road trip with the text of the novel.
