Travel narrative truth: literary techniques for authentication in Tvoyage van Mher Joos van Ghistele (ca. 1490).
This research aims at identifying the stylistic, rhetorical and narrative techniques used to construct dependability in Tvoyage van Mher Joos van Ghistele, the Middle Dutch report of Ghent nobleman Joos van Ghistele's (†1516) four-year journey to the Orient (1481-1485). Through comparison to other European travel narratives reporting journeys to the East (ca. 1450-1510), this project will reveal the position Tvoyage takes in this respect to its contemporaries.
