Abstract

This essay examines The Asian Journal of Thomas Merton, a posthumously edited diary account of his 1968 journey. Merton's Asian travel is interpreted as an unusual form of pilgrimage, and considered in relation to certain ethical issues raised by intercultural travel, such as the problem of Orientalism.
