Record #191859:

The ends of the Earth: narrating Scott, Amundsen and Antarctica / John Wylie.

Title: The ends of the Earth: narrating Scott, Amundsen and Antarctica / John Wylie.
Author(s): Wylie, John.
Date: 2008.
Publisher: London: I.B. Tauris
In: High places : cultural geographies of mountains and ice. (2008.),
Abstract: Compares emotional responses and imagery used by Scott and Amundsen in their writing about Antarctica, and contrasts presence of two artists (Ponting and Wilson) on Scott's expedition with none on Amundsen's. Discussion includes their different attitudes to ice and snow as Amundsen constructs within it and Scott removes it; and their attitudes to means of transport where Amundsen calculated weights of dogs as meat and Scott extolled virtues of man-hauling. Author also describes his experiences of using library and archive resources at Scott Polar Research Institute during late 1990s.
