Constantinople chez Antonio Baratta : palimpseste ou peinture d'après nature ?

Abstract

The study of the volumes that the diplomat Antonio Baratta dedicated to the city of Constantinople, where he lived for several years, aims to question the supposedly original position of the author on the tradition of travel narrative in the main city of the Levant. Indeed, Baratta claims to write with a clear distance from other travel writers but this analysis invites to qualify this statement. His relation to the travelling Orientalist narratives is intricate and his efforts to free himself from his predecessors seem to end, after all, in failure. This research questions the gap between his desire to provide a new representation of the city and the use of pre-texts to fuel his own books.
