0.00 CHF tax incl.

Studying the career of a traveller's ghost-writer helps in understanding the issues at stake in a travel account and the process of its creation. Pierre Bergeron gave shape to the travels of Pyrard, Mocquet and Leblanc by constantly qualifying their content and form throughout the process of publication. Tracing the career of this polygraph brings to light the specific editorial techniques used in travel accounts and the rhetorical nature of these texts in the context of colonial propaganda. However, political propaganda is only one aspect of the editor’s program: the travel accounts edited by Bergeron lie somewhere between scientific studies and adventure novels. They are clearly directed towards the most knowledgeable people of the time, looking for both scientific reports and entertaining readings. Analysis of Pierre Bergeron’s editorial practices contributes to better understanding of both scientific and literary cultures of the Early Modern period.
