The Lives and Strange Surprising Adventures of Classic and Contemporary Travellers in Fiction in English

Onderzoeksoutput: Meeting abstract (Book)

Samenvatting

"I thought we were already overstocked with books of travels," Gulliver replies when asked to write down his extraordinary experiences as a traveller in Swift's 1726 fictional travel journal. From the birth of the novel three centuries ago, with the publication of The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe (1719) by Daniel Defoe, travellers and migrants have featured prominently in fiction in English. This paper examines, from a postcolonial perspective, the literary treatment of the figure of the traveller throughout the history of literatures in English up to literary explorations of the asylum seeker at the dawn of the 21st century.
