Das “Aufsuchen von Landschaften (Kugyong)”: Elemente Einer Poetik des Vormodernen Koreanischen Reiseberichts
Abstract:The nexus between travel and desire has in modern western scholarship most often been established for early modern exoticist writing with its strong colonialist overtones. It may surprise, therefore, to find travel described as libidinous activity in Korean domestic travelogues as early as the 16th century. This essay explores how the search for sensual and aesthetic pleasures contributes to the poetics of traveling in premodern Korea.
