Encounters with the Other: the Feud of Identities

Publication: Philologica Jassyensia, VI (2), p. 245-254
Publisher:Institutul de Filologie Română „A. Philippide”
Abstract:Our paper points up to the interweaving of modern travel writing with major questions pointing to Western culture. In real or imaginary texts of J.-M.G. Le Clézio, Mircea Eliade and Thomas Mann European identity is at stake. Regardless of their different starting points, the authors end up questioning the status of the equation civilised versus wild, as a basic principle of Western culture. A special emphasis is placed by the three writers on the stereotypes of the encounter Myself/The Other, fostered by modern European culture mainly through mythical patterns.
Key words:European literature, modern travel writing, Myself/ the Other
