TRAVELLING THE EMPIRE AND THE REPUBLIC IN AN ORIENTALIST CONTEXT: FREDERICK BURNABY?S ON HORSEBACK THROUGH ASIA MINOR AND PHILIP GLAZEBROOK?S JOURNEY TO KARS: A MODERN TRAVELER IN THE OTTOMAN LANDS

Abstract

Author(s): Atalay GNDZ

Nineteenth century British imperialism made travel a necessity as well as a possibility for British subjects. In that imperialist context Frederick Burnaby traveled through the Ottoman Anatolia from Istanbul to Kars in 1877. More than a hundred years later it was that time trying to reconstruct the structure of feeling of the nineteenth century travelers that Philip Glazebrook undertook a similar itinerary in 1980. Using Edward W. Said’s findings on the common points of the Orientalist discourse, the purpose of this study is to compare the discourses of two travelogues written on Turkey in different centuries. Considering the fact that travel writing is a highly inter-textual genre, the impact of Burnaby’s and Glazebrook’s travelogues, written on Turkey in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries respectively, makes them especially helpful to us to understand how the Orientalist discourse operate through time.
