Abstract

Cultural perceptions of exotic nations do not depend solely on transparence of representation or immediacy of experience, they are also based on complex processes that involve interpretation and re-invention. The (con)fusion of the real and the imaginary that informs any form of writing about the Other stems not only from the existential experience of the one who perceives but also from the socio-historical factors that define his presence in the Other space. This article will be looking at how this complex relation that exists between literature, imperialism and imagined space is reflected in André Malraux's La Voie royale (1930) and Henri Fauconnier's Malaisie (1930).
