The Journey of Miguel Torga
This study argues the case of Miguel Torga (1907-95) being one of the major Portuguese travel authors of the twentieth century.

This conclusion was drawn following:
• an analysis of key romances, journals and novels of Torga such as the Künstlerroman A Criação do Mundo – Os Seis Primeiros Dias, the Bildungsroman A Criação do Mundo – Os Dois Primeiros Dias, the travel book Portugal, the Diário, Traço de União and the picaresque novel O Senhor Ventura.
• the influence received by Torga from the ancient travel writing masterpieces available in Portuguese literature, the contribution of Modernism and Post–Modernism European travel writers and the experience of the Neo–realism.

The book includes an extensive primary and secondary bibliography of Miguel Torga and Travel writing.
