Maxime et Gérard vont à Constantinople

Translated title of the contribution: Maxime and Gérard go to Constantinople

Research output: Contribution in Book/Catalog/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


The article is about Du Camp's Souvenirs et Paysages d'Orient (1848). These are an account of his trip to Turkey, mainly to Constantinople in the summer of 1844. Camp had an illustrous predecessor since Nerval had been in Constantinople for three whole months in 1843. It is interesting to compare the two travel narratives as Nerval's memories, collected in LEs Nuits du Ramazan, appeared after those from Du Camp in 1850.
