Item description for Under Eastern Eyes: A Comparative Introduction to East European Travel Writing on Europe (East Looks West, Vol. 2) by Wendy Bracewell...
This book presents twelve studies explicitly developed to elaborate on travel writing published in book form by east Europeans travelling in Europe from ca. 1550 to 2000. How did east Europeans have positioned themselves with relation to the notion of Europe, and how has the genre of travel writing served as a means of exploring and disseminating these ideas? A truly comparative and collective work with a substantial introductory study, the book has taken full advantage of the interdisciplinary and comparative potential of the team of project scholars working in the different national literatures, from different disciplinary perspectives. This is the second volume of a three-part set of "East Looks West" - Vol. 1 - "An Anthology of East European Travel Writing on Europe"; and Vol. 3 - "A Bibliography of East European Travel Writing on Europe".
