Ali je lahko ženska Kolumb? Nekateri vidiki preučevanja potopisov Alme Karlin

Research output

Abstract

The paper deals with some disputable aspects of Alma Karlin’s travelogues, which
play an important role in her work. The genre characteristics of her travelogues,
their literary topics and the autobiographical nature are considered. Particular
attention is paid to both the goals of Alma Karlin’s journey and intentions of her
travelogues. The basic focus is on the specifics of women’s travel and the phenomenon of the border, which is problematised not only by Karlin’s works, but also by
their reception. The motif of horror, which is partly relevant to trivial literature, is
also examined, and the female version of the archetype of the hero as discoverer,
as is presented in the works of A. Karlin, is discussed.
