Description


Writing Travel investigates the ways in which two major Latin American authors, Roberto Bola o and Juan Jos Saer, engage with travel and space in their literary work. Travel and space are structures of representation within which cultural traditions are interrogated, reassessed and reformulated and therefore fundamental to the understanding of the critical fabric of the texts themselves. The book enquires into the politics of representation in Bola o's and Saer's work and the cultural and ideological implications at stake in writing travel. Writing Travel comprises the first scholarly study of the work of Roberto Bola o and Juan Jos Saer, with a focus on the thematic and formal representation of travel and space in their literature. It is an important contribution to the existing knowledge on the novels of the two authors, examining key and understudied aspects of their work.
