Item description for A Bibliography of East European Travel Writing on Europe (East Looks West, Vol. 3) by Wendy Bracewell & Alex Drace-francis...
The bibliography volume of the three-volume "East Looks West: East European Travel Writing in Europe" collates travel writing published in book form by east Europeans travelling in Europe from ca. 1550 to 2000. It is intended as a fundamental research tool, collecting together travel writings within each national/linguistic tradition, and enabling comparative analysis of such material. It fills an important gap in the existing reference literature, both in western and east European languages, and will be of use to those working in the growing fields of comparative travel writing, regional and national identities, and postcolonialism.These texts exist in surprisingly large numbers, and include writings of high literary quality as well as of historical interest, but they have been relatively little studied as a genre. Much of this material is rare and difficult to find, even in national libraries. As a result, there are few bibliographical surveys of the literature of east European travel and self-representation, and none that are region-wide or comparative in scope. This is the third volume of a three-part set of "East Looks West", Vol. 1 - "An Anthology of East European Travel Writing on Europe"; and Vol. 2 - "A Comparative Introduction to East European Travel Writing on Europe".
