Summary/Abstract: The group of texts named travel writing exists from the beginning of written culture, and nowadays, with the growing tourism industry, its popularity is higher than ever. The English terms (travel writing, travelogue, travel literature) show the difficulties of definition in the case of these texts due to the fact that they combine the characteristics of more genres. The distinction between the subtypes of these texts can be done by their dominant features. In my paper, I will discuss the aspects of “in-between-ness” from the point of view of genre, imagology, and identity in William Blacker’s novel published in 2009, entitled Along the Enchanted Way.
