9 What can we learn, then, for the continued study of travel writing from the evident imperfections of Imperial Eyes and the limitations of its own recensions? What do they mean for the analysis of material about travel in contemporary Latin America especially, the region in which so much of the discussion of Pratt’s book is located, and in respect of which its paradigms have been so pervasive and yet equally so tested? Dane Kennedy’s more measured approach to the interplay of literature and history proves to be instructive in formulating an answer to that question.

Insofar as many of them offer a welcome ‘thickening’ or complicating of the colonial experience – for example, by painting a more complex picture of the fascinating and already well studied Humboldt – they also continue to privilege the scrutiny of that experience from the point of view of the metropolitan European subject. Compelling though such critiques of Imperial Eyes on this level may be, therefore, in their insistence on revisiting already canonized works and in focusing repeatedly on the colonial subject, they are limited in the extent to which they advance a truly more expansive account of the (post)colonial period.

That those imperial eyes were ‘mediated through prolix, irregular texts’, Ferris argues, in fact ‘rendered more difficult than we sometimes credit the totalling view that informed and was often explicitly sought by the travel writers’ (Ferris: 458). As a specific case study she considers the ‘traveller-seer’ Humboldt, whose 30 volumes in 30 years are cast on ‘an epic scale’ in Pratt’s book. While that critic identifies an ideology of colonial complicity underpinning and consolidating his voluminous works, by contrast Ferris observes that ‘contemporary eyes were overwhelmed by the sheer quantity and inchoateness’ (Ferris: 459) of the 30 volumes of his Personal Narrative (1799–1804).
