A narrativa de viagem em Portugal no século XIX : alteridade e identidade nacional

Abstract : This dissertation will be focused on the analysis of travel writing in Portugal in the nineteenth century, from the point of view of abroad images in which we will analyse not only its particularities, but also its connection with the eighteenth century periodical press namely newspapers' daily chapters, a written genre of French influence with great expansion at the time. In this context, we will centre our attention in travel writing from the second generation of Portuguese romantic writers, pondering on all the mechanisms which preside to hetero and auto images, based on a collective imaginary flowing from the articulated process between alterity and identity. This analysis will enable us not only to establish a kind of travel cartography which has marked Portuguese literature of the nineteenth century, but also to discover all the places which have become mythical for Portuguese travellers in the light of cultural paradigm at the time.
