IMAGINED EMIGRATIONS. A NOMADIC SUBJECT IN ПИСМА ДО ГАУСТИН BY GEORGI GOSPODINOV
Languages of publication
This article is an attempt to read the cycle Писма и фотографии (Letters and photographs) of bulgarian writer Georgi Gospodinov (part of Писма до Гаустин) as the overall project, whose main idea is to "recover" the travel, to give it a new unusual dimension, by "losing way" in spaces designated by various sites of the foreign countries. Nomad, in opposite to Bauman's tourist or vagabond, is a traveler, for whom moving is not a goal in itself. Nomad is not homeless. He identifies with the place in which he resides, he explore it and leaves it (but not abandon). He has specific kind of respect for the land on which he settled (but not possessed). The metaphor of the nomad means free crossing of the broadly defined boundaries and a certain periodicity, originally associated with the cycle of nature and the seasons. The analyze of Gospodinov's Писма и фотографии shows that subject in Писма до Гаустин can be recognized as a nomadic.
