This chapter discusses the practical ways that current critical considerations coincide with and yet diverge from both the French publishing phenomenon known as the ‘le travel writing’ and the movement that underpins this, which is called the Pour une littérature voyageuse. Some of the critical considerations identified in this chapter are translation and interculturality. A critique of the Pour une littérature voyageuse is included in this chapter. Domestic journeys as an alternative itinerary and Maspero's self-conscious travel text are discussed as well.

Keywords:   French publishing phenomenon, le travel writing, Pour une littérature voyageuse, translation, interculturality, domestic journeys, Maspero, travel text
