Summary/Abstract: Bruges, a special town, similar to Paris, equally fascinates and inspires writers coming from different literary backgrounds. However, it is Georges Rodenbach who discovered its anthropomorphous character. The wanderers have a significant role within the narrative context, their very presence being associated with a quite large number of psychological reasons: pedantry, curiosity, aesthetic pleasure and fascination.
