Optional Fields
travel writing; mobility; Iberian Studies; translation
This volume examines a number of modern and contemporary travel and mobility narratives produce in the different languages of Iberia, whether they offer accounts of Iberia itself or portray other geographical or human contexts. Illustrating the diversity of forms characteristic of travel writing, the volume also incorporates a selection of creative responses to the tropes of travel and mobility by contemporary Iberian authors in English translation. The book provides critical accounts of and creative insights into a tradition that has produced canonical texts, as well as unorthodox, complex and challenging narratives, particularly in more recent times.
