Shelves: society-culture-anthropology-etc , nonfiction , biography-memoir , french , travel What kind of travel memoir starts with a section titled "An End to Journeying" and the opening line "I hate traveling and explorers"? Tristes Tropiques is more than an ironic sneer at travelers who only want to be seen or to show off. It is not just a memoir, a travelogue or a work of anthropology, but rather all of these things. It is a study of how travels change us. The book starts off with the author's early life and claustrophobic education in France complete with 'beet-headed' professors b What kind of travel memoir starts with a section titled "An End to Journeying" and the opening line "I hate traveling and explorers"?
One has to add here that the authors have mainly Western tourists and Western anthropologists in mind. Later, though, his uncompromising criticism of colonialism and descriptions of Asian cities betray deep feelings, often of an aesthetic nature. Tristes tropiques does not tell us how the ethnographer looked: nowhere is his attire described, and neither is there a photograph depicting the author. One of them shows part of the camp: right by the river bank stands a table made of quite thick sticks, and on them are some blackened pots and a plate.
He looks like a true ethnographer should.
So why did he not include an image of himself in Tristes tropiques? In this way, I suspect that he aimed to distance himself from travel books, which tended to include a picture of the author even in the frontispiece. The lack of such a photo, then, could be evidence of the scientific nature of the text.
This was manifested in the term being denied its central theoretical meaning, but also in the subject of race not being conceived as a historical formation. The problem of race was therefore purged from ethnography, but remained in travel literature, whose authors often paid attention to skin colour, were more aware of the problem, and were sometimes simply racists.
Intuitively, however, it is present, especially when the author writes at the very beginning that he is a Jew fleeing Europe read: a Europe rife with racism , or in his fierce and uncompromising criticism of colonialism.
This was all possible thanks to the efforts of field research e. This concerned above all the emotions shown in the text, which in classical ethnographies were reined in and could appear only in tightly rationed situations and limited intensity and directions. This intentional subjectivity and uncovering, rather than concealing, of feelings put the text in the bounds of literature.
She was also one of the organisers of expeditions to Mato Grosso. He leads the reader by the hand in a manner that is authoritative and does not tolerate opposition. We do not hear the natives, but only the intrusive and all-knowing voice of the narrator from off camera. This is the impression given by the part of Tristes tropiques on the Caduveo: the author describes only what he sees — i.
Post-war France was gripped by a renewed sense of pathos and disillusionment, but it was coupled with a growing interest in the non-Western cultures then emerging from beneath the imperial boot. Dosse presents an overview of reviews of Tristes tropiques by eminent intellectuals: R.
Aron, F. Yet French anthropologists, who were more established, did not respond with the same enthusiasm. The very title is an understatement. The tropics are not merely sad. Until then anthropological texts were by most practitioners supposed to report a studied reality, and were often treated as transparent windows onto other cultures.
The change in perspective came about in the mids with such publications as Writing Culture Clifford and Marcus , Works and Lives Geertz and Anthropology as Cultural Critique Marcus and Fischer , which tackled the problem of anthropological writing itself and launched the willingness to experiment Rapport and Overing Tristes tropiques is probably the best example of the process. He claims 69 that Tristes tropiques is not a boring book, but he is surprised by all the commotion over it.
He acknowledges that there are a few inspired extracts, but sees the ethnographic parts as superficial. I find it a sinister book. It begins with an outburst of hate and ends exchanging glances, in a gesture of involuntary understanding, with a cat. In between are visits to Brazil and India, where all human encounters are like mime shows or silent movies.
It is a Western habit to describe what one is seeing. Visweswaran notes that the cosmopolitanism of anthropology is traditionally seen as a radically anti-racist approach.
However, she argues that cosmopolitanism is not an opposition to racism at all, various forms of which can be taken from it. This particularly concerns cosmopolitanism being seen as a universal ethic e. Reception in the other contexts 63The translation of Tristes tropiques into Portuguese was published in Brazil in , only two years after the book appeared in France. From a certain point of view one may say that Brazilian anthropology as a discipline started only in the s Kirsch and Castro The concept was coined by Freyre to denote the distinctive character of Portuguese imperialism: more humane and adaptable to other climates and cultures, seeing miscegenation positively.
His travelogue is a report from his journey to Africa in on an invitation of the Portuguese Overseas Ministry. Stylistically, the books are quite alike. His tropics are sad peripheries. The Polish edition of Tristes tropiques came out quite early, in It was translated by Aniela Steinsberg , one of the first female Polish lawyers, a Holocaust survivor, in the communist era a defence counsel in political trials, an underground activist who was finally prevented by the authorities from working as a lawyer.
This leads not so much into the maze of gnoseology as sociology of cognition.
After the drought [of Stalinism] it was like a flower in the desert. We welcomed it with enthusiasm. Professor Dynowski enthused about the description of the sunset, and told us to be enthused, and caught structuralism from the aesthetic side. Not until the s, though, did Tristes tropiques make it into the courses of socio-cultural anthropology that were traditionally taught in sociology and ethnology departments.
One of them was related to the memory of the Holocaust, another to post-colonial sensibility Kubica Structuralism flattened the previous hierarchies of cultures and treated siteian and European myths just the same, seeing common, universal features in both. Moreover, Tristes tropiques is a radical and unambiguous condemnation of colonialism. In their book Anthropology as Cultural Critique, Marcus and Fischer pointed to the fact that the most important anthropological ideas were usually critical of the status quo at the time of their conception.
Later, however, this evolutionist way of perceiving humans was seen as unjust. We thought of ourselves as gadflies and reformers, advocates for the value of indigenous cultures, defenders of our people.
The times have changed, but there is more to that. They both can be scrutinised, and thus are prone to criticism. This became possible, as it is not a one-dimensional and homogeneous book, but one full of ambivalence and aporia. London and New York, Verso, translated by J.
