Narratives of Cyprus: Modern Travel Writing and Cultural Encounters since Lawrence Durrell

 52.90

Description

Unease has marked relations between modern travel writers and the people of Cyprus. Visitors like Lawrence Durrell, Colin Thubron, Christopher Hitchens and Sebastian Junger have registered the effects of political strife on both the people of the island and those who visit from abroad. Their accounts demonstrate how geopolitical realities – such as colonization, insurgency, inter-communal warfare, and now decades of militarized ‘peace’ – shape the narrating self and its relations to others.
