基本説明

Following the genre's development from classical times to the present, this book shows how it has evolved and changed, yet is always centered on encounters between the self and the other and the mediation between the familiar and the foreign.

Full Description


Blanton follows the development of travel writing from classical times to the present, focusing in particular on Anglo-American travel writing since the eighteenth century. He identifies significant theoretical and critical contributions to the field, and also examines key texts by James Boswell, Mary Kingsley, Graham Greene, Peter Mathiessen, V.S. Naipaul, and Bruce Chatwin.
