Asia en la España del siglo XIX. Literatos, viajeros, intelectuales y diplomáticos ante Oriente by Joan Torres-Pou (review)

Literatos, viajeros, intelectuales y diplomáticos ante Oriente. Amsterdam: Rodopi, 2013. 218 pp. David R.

Abstract

RESENAS JOAN TORRES-POU. Asia en la España del siglo XIX. Literatos, viajeros, intelectuales y diplomáticos ante Oriente. Amsterdam: Rodopi, 2013. 218 pp. David R. George, Jr. Over the past two decades scholars of nineteenth-century Spanish and Latin American literatures have scrutinized the trans-Atlantic ties between Spain and the Americas. Work in this area has shed new light on the multiple literary discourses generated by colonial and post-colonial exchanges across the Atlantic in a century of imperial expansion. Not only has this focus enriched the field of Spanish studies, but also of late it has impelled critics to look beyond the obvious trans-Atlantic axis to explore how other transnational relations are captured in nineteenth-century literature. In response to the impact of Edward Said’s seminal work on Europe’s relationship with the East Orientalism (1979) and to the recent economic ascendency of China, Latin American Studies has witnessed a “trans-Pacific turn” with research that takes account of the region’s historical and contemporary ties to Asia. Similarly, scholars of Iberian cultures have turned attention to the Far East with studies that retrace the long history of Portuguese and Spanish incursions in the Pacific, and the impact of such exchanges in the peninsula.
