Abstract
Contemporary European and American conceptions of Africa were initiated during that fantastic era of European exploration that lasted from 1856 to 1900.* The Africa that invades the literature of America and Europe is the Africa that lives in the writings of Samuel Baker, James Bruce, Sir Richard Burton, General Gordon, Lord Kitchener, Dr. David Livingston, John Hanning Speke, and Sir Henry Morton Stanley. These men dared to venture into an uncharted and savage land--to Khartoum, Zanzibar, and Somaliland--and the stories of their lives and travels are as exciting as the continent they challenged. Their books are filled with the exotic, the mysterious, and the savage; and these same forces draw modern writers to Africa.
