The royal city Dilmun was at the heart of riverine and sea-based trade that received tribute and traded in commodities, the descriptions of which provide clues as to their far-flung origins. Travel records dating to the third and fourth millennia BCE, while not classed as travel journals, are easily deduced from these and other important sources, including Egyptian records and the Hebrew Bible.
This is not intended to denigrate the bravery of Mediterranean or Iberian explorers, rather to suggest that the motivation of traders, merchants, and the wealthy who funded such missions were also seeking economic gain. This concept was not European in origin, but abounds in Middle Eastern and Asian records.
Compare Enmerkar to Ferdinand and Isabela: Enmerkar's broad goal was to unite five kingdoms and their various principalities "so the speech of mankind is truly one. Enmerkar sought to expand his power and influence, and justified his conquest by his claim of divinely decreed superior ideology and culture. If this was not political exploitation for economic gain, and the imposition of cultural homogeneity for assimilation of other groups, then what? I can see no difference between what Enmerkar or Charles V were doing apart from cultural contexts.

Travel writers come from a wide variety of backgrounds. What they all have in common is a great enthusiasm for travel and a strong desire to see their experiences in print. There are a couple of myths to quash here. It is not the case that you need to come from a professional writing background to become a travel writer. In practice, all you need is a commitment to develop your writing in a publishable direction , e. When he first came in touch with literary circles five years later, his mind seemed concentrated on the single endeavour of achieving a prose style that should match and truly express the vividness of his perceptions and imaginings, and poetry seemed hardly to be in his thoughts at all.
But I believe he was already beginning to try his hand at some of those pieces in the Lothian vernacular which were afterwards published in Underwoods. While he was absent, to the anxious concern of his friends, on his marriage expedition to California in , and suffering with high courage much illness and privation, he sometimes cast into unstudied but deeply felt verse the emotions of the time: to this period belong the lines beginning "Not yet, my soul, these friendly fields desert," as well as the famous "Requiem", perhaps his best known utterance in verse.
During the six invalid years on the Continent or in England that followed, the tale of such occasional poems, composed in self-confession or as addresses to friends, continued to grow, but he showed no signs of intending to publish them. Occasionally there came a metrical experiment, like the set of alcaics addressed to Mr. But as a rule he preferred to employ the most familiar vehicles, especially the four-stressed couplet or blank verse ,— a blank verse of no very studied or complicated structure, perhaps more resembling that of Landor in his occasional and complimentary pieces than any other model.
He took to sending home, first in batches and then in sheaves, sets of nursery verses reviving, with a fidelity and freshness unparalleled, the feelings and fancies, the doings and beings, of an imaginative child; the child being of course truly himself. This was his first published book of verse Having once thus come before the public as a writer of verse, he next gathered together what he thought the pick of his occasional and experimental efforts both in English and in Scots, and published them in a volume of which he borrowed the title, Underwoods , from Ben Jonson.
In the English portion of the book many of his private affections and experiences, and some of his thoughts and observations as a traveller, are recorded in no such strain of brilliant and high-wrought craftsmanship as he maintains in his prose, but for the most part in modes which attract and satisfy by a certain quiet, companionable grace and unobtrusive distinction of their own.
When in Stevenson left England again, and as it turned out for good and all, he carried with him both the habit of throwing his immediate personal emotions into simple and heartfelt occasional verse and that of trying his hand deliberately at new styles and measures. This time his new technical experiments were in the ballad form. The first, Ticonderoga, a tale of Highland second-sight during the American War of Independence, was written at the Adirondacks at the beginning of winter, During the eighteen months of seafaring in the Pacific archipelagos which followed, he took an intense interest in the native island populations and their traditions, partly because of resemblances he found between them and those of the Scottish Highlands, and wrote two long and vigorous ballads in a swinging 6-beat and triple-time measure on subjects of island history, "Rahero" and "The Feast of Famine.
When in they were reprinted in a volume, he included with them 2 others more familiar in theme, the Galloway story of "Heather Ale," and the English one, told with fine spirit in the 1st person, "Christmas at Sea. The more remote and solitary the island haunt from whence he wrote, the more poignant seemed his recollections of Scotland or of London; and once at any rate, in the verses "To S.
After his sudden death at Vailima in December, , a volume, partly prepared by himself, of these later occasional verses, together with some of earlier date that had not previously been collected, was published under the title Songs of Travel. Stevenson was a celebrity in his own time, but with the rise of modern literature after World War I , he was seen for much of the 20th century as a writer of the second class, relegated to children's literature and the horror genre.

Condemned by authors such as Virginia Woolf and her husband, Leonard Woolf, he was gradually excluded from the literary canon taught in schools. His exclusion reached a height in when, in the 2,page Oxford Anthology of English Literature, Stevenson was entirely unmentioned.
The late 20th century saw the start of a re-evaluation of Stevenson as an artist of great range and insight, a literary theorist, an essayist and social critic, a witness to the colonial history of the South Pacific, and a humanist. He is now being re-evaluated as a peer with authors such as Joseph Conrad who Stevenson influenced with his South Seas fiction and Henry James, with new scholarly studies and organizations devoted to his work.
No matter what the scholarly reception, Stevenson remains very popular. A plaque above the door of a house in Castleton of Braemar asserts 'Here R. Stevenson spent the Summer of and wrote Treasure Island , his first great work'. Stevenson School in Pebble Beach, California was established in and still exists as a college preparatory boarding school.
