Departure : II On Travelling Places 8
出发:第2章: 旅行中的特定场所 第8节

第8节

The value we ascribe to the process of travelling, to wandering without reference to a destination, connects us, the critic Raymond Williams once proposed, to a broad shift in sensibilities dating back some 200 years, whereby the outsider came to seem morally superior to the insider:

From the late 18th century onwards, it is no longer from the practice of community but from being a wanderer that the instinct of fellow feeling is derived. Thus an essential isolation and silence and loneliness become the carriers of nature and community against the rigours, the cold abstinence, the selfish ease of ordinary society.

Raymond Williams, The Country and the City

If we find poetry in the service station and motel, if we are drawn to the airport or train carriage, it is because, in spite of their architectural compromises and discomforts, in spite of their garish colours and harsh lighting, we implicitly feel that these isolated places offer us a material setting for an alternative to the selfish ease, the habits and confinement of the ordinary, rooted world.
