Er, wir oder ich? Frühneuzeitliche Reiseberichte auf dem Weg zur Autobiografie

Laura Balbiani


Early modern writers pursued several purposes in writing down their travel impressions, mostly pragmatic ones; only gradually did travelogues become a separate genre of memorabilia, which served for entertainment and edification, but also for self-expression. Based on a corpus of manuscripts and prints from the period 1520 to 1694, the essay analyses the author-reader constellation of these travelogues and the speaker and reference roles to determine the extent to which they can represent initial approaches to a development of the first-person narrative.
