A critical analysis of the form of the Romantic travelogue, making use of material that comes from two women writers from two different parts of Europe, but refers to the same subject matter- i.e. mid-19th century travels in Italy.
A gem to attract a wide readership. This book will interest researchers in nineteenth-century literature as well as comparative literary scholars and appeal to the non-specialist readers and enthusiasts of Romantic travel writing and women’s literature.
