Viewing Europe from the Outside: Cultural Encounters and Critiques in the Eighteenth-century Pseudo-Oriental Travelogue and the Nineteenth-century 'Voyage en Orient'
P. Lang, 1997 - 288 pagina's
"Viewing Europe from the Outside" reexamines the narrative portrayal of cultural encounters between East and West in English and French Orientalist discourse. It focuses, in particular, on the eighteenth-century satirical travel account and the nineteenth-century literary travelogue. Through a close reading of five texts, it defines the monological, dialogical, and parodic uses of the Other as three forms of encounters that both provide structure for and participate in a self-reflective culture critique.
