"Othereness in Travel Writing" addresses a delicate issue in the study of cross-cultural encounters, namely the representation of the 'Other' in travel accounts.
The book provides a smooth, yet academic examination of the relationship between travel wrting and the concept of Otherness, drawing on a multi-disciplanary critical background, ranging from literary theory, sociology, psychology, to the present insights from cultural studies.
The focus f the present book is laid upon Wyndham Lewis's account of his travels throughout Morocco, which he entitled "A Journey into Barbary".
Therefore, the author unveils the techniques and strategies that demonstrate 'Otherness' in Lewis's representation of Moroccans.
The author's analysis of the Lewis's travel account goes as far as to cover the various factors that influenced Lewis's representation of Moroccans, such as imperialism, white-supremacy, exoticism, etc.
