Nomads, war machines, Freud and The Doors : a schizoanalysis of Alexander Strachan's ""Visioen"" (""Vision"") with reference to Apocalypse NowIn the thought of Deleuze and Guattari, subjectivity is seen as a radical multiplicity which continuously transforms itself. Some literary texts can be read as portrayals of such a multiple and so-called nomadic subjectivity. I set out to read Alexander Strachan's short story ""Visioen"" (""Vision"") from his debut collection, 'n Wêreld sonder grense (A World without Borders) (1984), with a few Deleuze-Guattarian concepts in hand, and hopefully this schizoanalysis will show a way to a new reading of all Strachan's early texts. Francis Ford Coppola's film Apocalypse Now (1979) will be used as an important intertext throughout the discussion.
