The journey to the East, travel to the Orient.
In the literary world, travel to the Orient has a strong dream value. It is an initiatory and symbolic journey as much as it is real on the paths of knowledge.
This crossing is dotted with illuminations. Certainties and doubts represent the path to wisdom, self-fulfillment and the discovery of one's identity.
Orientalism was one of the generators of surrealism. In art it became the projection of dreams in reaction to the weight of a tired academism.
