About this item

Nine essays in French and six in English explore aspects of French-language travel writing, reflecting both the breadth of the genre and the diversity of those who research and write about it. They are in chronological order, beginning with the French version of the pan-European myth Voyage of Brendan. The English essays discuss the columns of (dis)possession: totem and territory in French colonial expeditions to Florida 1562-65, Algeria's ghosts: Eugène Fromentin's Un été dan le Sahara, travel and technology in Blaise Cendrars, nomadic reflections: voyage to a lost Maghreb in Albert Memmi's Le Désert and earlier literary exoduses, writing hybridized identities in Fatou Diome's Le ventre de l'Atlantique, and the Odyssey revisited in Marie Ndiaye's Ladivine.
