Anatomy of restlessness : selected writings, 1969-1989 by Bruce Chatwin( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Such a view overlooks the fact that from the late 1960s onward Chatwin was already fashioning the tools of his future trade in the columns of a variety of magazines and journals. And that he continued to do so through every twist and turn of his career, from art expert to archaeologist, to journalist and author, right up until his death in 1989. These previously neglected or unpublished pieces - short stories, travel sketches, essays, articles, and criticism - gathered together here for the first time, cover every period and aspect of the writer's career, and reflect the abiding themes of his work: roots and rootlessness, exile and the exotic, possession and renunciation
Anatomy of restlessness : uncollected writings by Bruce Chatwin( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is commonly supposed that Bruce Chatwin was an ingenuous latecomer to the profession of letters, a misapprehension given apparent credence by that now famous passage in his lyrical, autobiographical "I Always Wanted to Go to Patagonia," in which we are told that this indefatigable traveler's literary career began in midstride, almost on a whim, with a telegram announcing his departure for the farthest-flung corner of the globe: "Have gone to Patagonia." Such a view overlooks the fact that from the late 1960s onward Chatwin was already fashioning the tools of his future trade in the columns of a variety of magazines and journals. And that he continued to do so through every twist and turn of his career, from art expert to archaeologist, to journalist and author, right up until his death in 1989. These previously neglected or unpublished pieces - short stories, travel sketches, essays, articles, and criticism - gathered together here for the first time, cover every period and aspect of the writer's career, and reflect the abiding themes of his work: roots and rootlessness, exile and the exotic, possession and renunciation

Convertir, se convertir : regards croisés sur l'histoire des missions chrétiennes( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Histoire des missions extérieures examinées avec le recul de l'appareil critique développé après les décolonisations. A partir d'analyses littéraires effectuées sur des récits de voyages de missionnaires catholiques et protestants, les auteurs interrogent l'activité missionnaire elle-même : s'agit-il de "croire et faire croire" ou de " se convertir et convertir"? Quelle place occupe le témoignage personnel, l'expérience intime, dans le mouvement vers l'Autre qui fonde le partage de vérités a priori universelles?

Anatomie de l'errance by Bruce Chatwin( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in French and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quoiqu'un peu disparate, ce recueil posthume de textes épars (1970-1984) justifie son titre par sa première partie: "Horreur du domicile" et sa troisième: "L'alternative nomade". L'ensemble comportant nouvelles et critiques littéraires comblera les habitués de cet auteur mort prématurément et amorcera ceux qui ne le connaissaient pas
Foreign Correspondence by Benjamin Colbert( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though writers and readers have long agreed that travel does not only broaden the mind, but that it is also useful to report on such an experience, the question of what to report on and how has remained a matter of debate. To think of travel and travel writing as foreign correspondence is to apply, metaphorically, a phrase that has its own complex and overlapping history in journalism, politics, and international culture. The chapters of this volume focus on this notion, seen here as a dual problematic oscillating between the private and the public, whether as letters or other forms of writing sent from abroad

Les Voyages de Gulliver : mondes lointains ou mondes proches( )

in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parti pour faire fortune, mais contraint par les circonstances de s'adapter aux modes de vie de diverses contrées étrangères, Gulliver semble y retrouver toujours, d'une façon ou d'une autre, les problèmes qui se posaient déjà dans les mères patries qu'il a laissées derrière lui : l'Angleterre où il est né ; l'Irlande où vit son géniteur spirituel ; l'Europe, qui fait l'objet des critiques du narrateur aux multiples visages. Cependant, le lecteur se rend très vite compte que si le navigateur-narrateur-antihéros des Voyages l'invite en effet à le suivre dans des aventures au cœur de contrées où se mélangent traits réalistes et peintures utopiques, c'est bien plus profondément les multiples facettes de la nature humaine que l'ouvrage lui-même lui propose de redécouvrir. C'est cet ensemble complexe d'éléments historiques, géographiques, rhétoriques et philosophiques des Voyages de Gulliver que les auteurs des articles ont cherché à mieux définir, afin de faciliter la lecture de ce chef-d'œuvre de la littérature du XVIIIe siècle
