The Motive of Tropical Colony in Evelyn Waugh’s Work

The motive of tropical colony is traced in Waugh’s writings from the early travel books through «A Handful of Dust» to «The Loved One». The motive’s structural and symbolic functioning is shown to be the integral part of Waugh’s handling of the opposition between barbarism and civilization.
