Exotisme désigne à l’origine ce qui vient de l’étranger, mais acquiert rapidement des connotations de bizarrerie, voire de «pittoresque superficiel»… ou de «frisson provoqué par le danger»…. Selon Tzvetan Todorov, ce phénomène possède trois dimensions intimement liées: la valorisation de l’autre, la critique de soi et de la société d’appartenance, le fantasme d’un idéal fondé sur l’image d’un autre romantiquement reconstruit; en bref, l’exotisme équivaut à un «éloge dans la méconnaissance» [Todorov 1989: 298].
