Elizabeth Bradfield’s 2019 collection Toward Antarctica: An Exploration presents a perceptive and nuanced behind-the-scenes tour of Antarctic cruise tourism. Inspired by seventeenth-century poet Matsuo Bashō’s haibun form which Bashō used to chronicle his journeys through Japan, the volume mixes haiku, prose and images to break down boundaries between travel and poetry. Toward Antarctica was listed at the top of Amazon’s ‘travel guide’ category, demonstrating the wider appeal of this innovative approach to recording and communicating travel narratives.
