Morocco   By: (1872-1958)

Book cover

Morocco by Samuel L. Bensusan is a captivating travel memoir that takes readers on an unforgettable journey through the vibrant landscapes and rich cultural tapestry of Morocco. Bensusan's storytelling prowess shines through as he recounts his experiences in this North African country with eloquence and vividness.

One of the most commendable aspects of this book is Bensusan's ability to transport the reader directly into the heart of Morocco. Through his beautifully descriptive prose, the author paints a vivid picture of the bustling streets of Marrakech, the serene beauty of the Atlas Mountains, and the awe-inspiring architecture of ancient cities like Fez and Casablanca. His attention to detail is meticulous, allowing readers to feel as though they are right beside him, soaking up the sights, sounds, and scents of the exotic locales he explores.

Beyond the physical landscapes, Bensusan delves deep into the essence of Morocco's rich cultural heritage. He explores the nuanced customs, traditions, and religious practices of the people he encounters, bringing a sense of authenticity and respect to his observations. Whether it is attending a lively street festival, savoring traditional Moroccan cuisine, or engaging in insightful conversations with locals, the author's keen eye for cultural nuances makes the reader feel intimately connected with the country and its people.

Another aspect that stands out in Morocco is Bensusan's ability to capture the dichotomy of modernity and tradition that exists in Morocco. He seamlessly weaves together tales of old-world charm and the contemporary reality of a country grappling with rapid development. As he navigates bustling city streets and remote villages off the beaten path, he skillfully highlights the contrast between ancient architectural marvels and the encroaching influence of globalization.

At its core, Morocco is not just a travelogue but a personal exploration of self-discovery and transformation. Bensusan shares his own introspective journey with honesty and vulnerability, making this memoir relatable and thought-provoking. His encounters with locals, his reflections on the impact of tourism, and his observations about the socio-political fabric of Morocco add depth and substance to the narrative, elevating it beyond a mere travelogue to a captivating exploration of the human experience.

In conclusion, Morocco by Samuel L. Bensusan is an enchanting tribute to the wonders of this North African gem. The author's exquisite storytelling, attention to detail, and introspective musings make this book a delight to read for both travel enthusiasts and those seeking a deeper understanding of Morocco's culture and people. It is a true gem that transports readers to a land of breathtaking beauty and leaves them with a renewed sense of wanderlust and appreciation for the world around them.

It has been a pleasant task to recall the little journey set out in the following pages, but the writer can hardly escape the thought that the title of the book promises more than he has been able to perform.

The mere idler, the wayfarer to whom Morocco is no more than one of many places of pilgrimage, must needs deal modestly with his task, even though modesty be an unfashionable virtue; and the painstaking folk who pass through this world pelting one another with hard facts will find here but little to add to their store of ammunition. This appeal is of set purpose a limited one, made to the few who are content to travel for the sake of the pleasures of the road, free from the comforts that beset them at home, and free also from the popular belief that their city, religion, morals, and social laws are the best in the world...
