Travel: A Journey to Discover Self and Others

Ruo-yung Lee/Taiwan Association of Classical, Medieval and Renaissance Studies (TACMRS)

The Renaissance was an era of magnificent art achievement, and an age of "discovery" and "self-fashioning": the exploration to the "new world" heralded by the Iberians, the Grand Tour popular with the upper-class youth, and the "spiritual odyssey" undertaken in writers' studies, all exhibited the "burning curiosity" harbored by the contemporaries. Travel, physical or spiritual, was not just a movement from one place to another, but also a process of encountering and discovery: a traveller, coming across with diverse people and occurrences during the journey, gradually formatted his idea of "who I am" by identifying "who you are". The "self" and "others" dynamic burgeoned in the course.
