Excerpt from The Romance of Isabel, Lady Burton: The Story of Her Life She was a voluminous writer, and she left behind her such a mass of letters and manuscripts that the sorting of them alone was a formidable task. The difficulty has been to keep the book within limits. In the second place, Lady Burton has written the Life of her husband; and though in that book she studiously avoided putting herself forward, and gave to him all the honour and the glory, her life was so absolutely bound up with his, that of necessity she covered some of the ground which I have had to go over again, though not from the same point of view. So much has been written concerning Sir Richard Burton that it is not necessary for me to tell again the story of his life here, and I have therefore been able to write wholly of his wife, an equally congenial task. Lady Burton was as remarkable as a woman as her husband was as a man. Her personality was as picturesque, her individuality as unique, and, allowing for her sex, her life was as full and varied as his.

Während sich im Europa des ausgehenden 19. und frühen 20. Jahrhunderts die Oberschicht in pulsierenden Metropolen wie Paris, London oder Berlin verlustierte, war den hier porträtierten Frauen ein Leben zwischen Boudoir und Salon nicht genug. Abenteurerinnen wie Isabel Burton, Vita Sackville-West und Freya Stark bereisten in Männerkleidern den Orient, ritten auf Maultieren durch Wüsten und über Gebirge, verteidigten sich gegen Wegelagerer und erforschten als Archäologinnen und Ethnologinnen alte Kulturen.

Weibliche Reiseberichte in Frankreich am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts

Die literarische Verarbeitung der Orienterfahrungen von Jane Dieulafoys Reisen nach Persien und Spanien (1851-1916)

Inhaltsangabe:Zusammenfassung: Die Arbeit gibt einleitend Auskunft über den Stand der Frauenreiseforschung und informiert über den biographischen Werdegang der in Vergessenheit geratenen französischen Autorin. Jane Dieulafoy lebte von 1851-1916. War Jane Dieulafoy zu Lebzeiten in Frankreich und über die Landesgrenzen hinaus berühmt, kennen ihren Namen heute nur einige wenige Historiker, Orientalisten, Archäologen. "Reise und du wirst einen Freund finden, der dir den zu Haus' zurückgelassenen ersetzt." (Jane Dieulafoy) Unter dieses Motto stellte die französische Autorin Jane Dieulafoy ihr Leben. Auf der Suche nach dem spezifisch Anderen und Fremdartigen einer Kultur bereiste sie an der Seite ihres Ehemanns vor allem Südeuropa und orientalische Länder. Zeugnis ihrer Erlebnisse und Eindrücke bilden vier umfangreiche Reiseberichte zu Persien und Spanien, die in der Magisterarbeit anhand von Textanalysen vorgestellt werden. Die Wiedergabe der Orienterfahrungen von Jane Dieulafoy in ihrem Persienrundreiseberich (La Perse, la Chaldée, la Susiane. Relation de voyage 1881-82; Paris 1887) und in ihrem Ausgrabungstagebuch (Journal de fouilles à Suse, Paris 1888) stehen im Mittelpunkt der Arbeit. Daneben habe ich ihre wissenschaftliche und literarische Auswertung der Orientreisen zusammengefaßt. Hierzu gehören die Entstehungsgeschichte ihrer Reiseberichte, die Aufbereitung der archäologischen Ausgrabungsfunde im Louvre, ihre literarischen Versuche in der Kunst des Romans sowie ihre Spanienreisen. Mit dieser Magisterarbeit möchte ich einen konkreten Beitrag für die Frauenreiseforschung leisten. Zur Zeit arbeite ich im Rahmen meiner Diplomarbeit im Studienfach Medienberatung an einem Konzept für eine CD-ROM über die Spanienreiseberichte von Jane Dieulafoy. Ziel ist ein multimedialer Spanienreiseführer zu den historischen Reisestationen Jane Dieulafoys, bei dem der Interessent in Wort und Bild zwischen der Vergangenheit und Gegenwart Spaniens hin- und herspringen kann und dabei entdecken wird, wie allgegenwärtig in Spanien heutzutage Geschichte ist.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

The history of the enquiry and the reasons for its abandonment, is revealed here, as are many other facts about the Highland supernatural tradition, and also about the remarkable career of Society of Psychical Research member Ada Goodrich Freer. Fascinating as a tale of late Victorian obsessions, as a story of two different people and cultures, or simply as an insight into of one of the deepest strands of Hebridean culture, Strange Things is a text of tradition, folklore, manipulation, charlatanism and fraud, now reprinted for the first time since 1968.
