Course Description

It is unlikely there has ever been a more original, beautifully written and complex set of travel writings than those composed by Evelyn Waugh. Here are travel writings closer to Gulliver's Travels than charming anecdotes in romantic settings. Here Waugh intentionally selects Third World countries avoided by travel agencies. His accounts report these physical landscapes and their mirror images of inner landscapes of black humor, absurdity, misanthropy, snobbery, unhinged logic and alcoholism culminating on a three month expedition down the Amazon where he endures serious injury and tropical disease. Dazzling stuff.
