Il libro:
This book on the Desert in Travel Writing is masterful and compelling. It explores the topic in a comprehensive and commanding manner. Radhouan Ben Amara thoroughly investigates the different metaphors used to describe the desert in Western and Eastern literatures as well as how such metaphors have come to play an important role in contemporary literary and cultural criticism. This essay represents one of the best dissertations I have ever read in the general area of literature. Ben Amara has made the research of a difficult subject appear easy and effortless. This is a credit to his refined scholarship.
