ABSTRACT
This paper suggests the possibility of making use of the narrative of migration as the object of study of a comparatist discipline that takes into account Armando Gnisci’s considerations on hospitality, as well as Gayatri Spivak’s on planetarity and comparative literature. In this sense, the paper aims at suggesting a possible line of research en comparative literature that needs not rely on the concept of national literature to be developed. The analysis of the narrative of migration, through a series of variables well recognised in travel literature, allows both in form and contents a comparatism of the encounter.
