|Ancient Roman ship by Valudia|
Anyway, I mention it because it is a seminal work in the discourse analysis of travel documents. (I suspect mainly because it shows the way more than anything else.) And applying that sort of analysis to various works from antiquity would be interesting. I'm sure someone's already done the Odyssey, if for no reason other than it's the travel writing of antiquity familiar to non-classicists.
Off the top of my head, I can think of a few more:
- Xenophon's Anabasis
- Herodotus's Histories
- Lucian's True Story
- Vergil's Aeneid
- Caesar's de Bello Gallico
Anyway. More mental fodder.
