Journey, Rediscovery and Narrative: British Travel Accounts of Argentina (1800-1850)




By Ricardo Cicerchia. Published 1998. ISBN 9781900039208



Detailed Description

This paper offers an historical analysis of British travel literature on Argentina and traces some features of the cultural history of society in the United Kingdom (particularly England) and the Río de la Plata region of Argentina during the first half of the 19th century. It simultaneously explores the development of these travel accounts in three fields: the configuration of a new community of readers and their impact on national identity; the voyages and their creation of the first Argentine images and representations; and the relationship between these accounts and the first national narratives in Argentina.
