Abstract

Ultimately, what I suggest is that a formalist approach to travel is not at all inconsistent with the political objectives of post-colonial readings. In discussing the historical divergence of formal and post-colonial perspectives on travel, from around 1978, and by examining how both new historicist and post-colonial criticisms retain a concern with formalist operations, I want to redirect attention back to the neurotic unknowingness of the travelling euro-subject in a broadly political fashion.
