Inspired Journeys: Travel Writers in Search of the Muse by Brian Bouldrey PDF

By Brian Bouldrey

ISBN-10: 0299309401

ISBN-13: 9780299309404

Full of humor, profundity, and obsession, those are stories of writers on peregrine paths. a few set out looking for legends or inventive idea; others search non secular epiphany or success of a promise. Their trips lead them variously to Dracula’s fort, Laura Ingalls Wilder’s prairie, the Grimms’ fairy-tale highway, Mayan temples, Nathaniel West’s California, the Camino de Santiago path, Scott’s Antarctica, the Marquis de Sade’s haunted manor, or the sacred urban of Varanasi. All of those pilgrimages are important journeys—redemptive and critical. yet a universal section of pilgrimage is a suspension of principles, and there's absurdity and enthusiasm right here as well.
