dc.description.abstractThis essay was written as my final research paper for my capstone course, English Literature seminar (ENGL450) class in November 2019. The capstone course’s topic at that time was focused on Travel Literature. The essay is a reflection on Sir Wilfred Thesiger’s travel writing book Arabian Sands; the paper talks about Thesiger’s observations on the antagonistic views of the Bedu of the Middle – East, and the reasons behind their animosity towards him in the 1940’s. My thesis in this paper demystifies the reasons the Bedu in Arabian Sands showed hostility from the sides of History and Cultural backgrounds, where there will be mentions of both Political and Islamic terminology that relates to Thesiger’s book aesthetic; furthermore, the essay also utilizes the lenses of Post-Colonialist and Cultural Studies theories to determine the settings of the novel alongside my analysis of the story.en_US
