dc.description.abstractThe aim of this thesis is to trace the idea of the flâneur, developed in Nineteenth-century Paris. The following chapters examine the inception of this idea with French poet Charles Baudelaire in the mid-nineteenth century, its implementation in the writings of German essayist and literary critic Walter Benjamin, and finally its manifestation in the writings of Argentine expatriate Julio Cortázar. With special attention to Cortázar’s work, Rayuela and its use of flânerie in both characters and form. The analyses examine the use of flânerie in the works of Baudelaire, Benjamin, and Cortázar and how these have evolved from the nineteenth to the twentieth century.
