THE DESERT IN TRAVEL WRITING

BEN AMARA, MOHAMED RADHOUAN
2006

Abstract

The volume thoroughly investigates the different metaphors used to describe the desert in Western and Eastern literatures as well as how such metaphors have come to play an important role in contemporary literary and cultural criticism. The essay explores the many ways to live the desert and its sacredeness, dealing with travel, location, displacement, exile and the new vague of tourism that is invading the world. Discovering the other has always been indisputably connected with the translation process utilised to bring back traces in the original space of the traveller.
