Moving Scenes : The Aesthetics of German Travel Writing on England 1783-1820 Hardback
Accounts of travel to England reached unprecedented levels of popularity in the German states in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
Competition therefore increased for travel writers to produce travelogues which offered the most authentic, original and vibrant picture of England.
The wider range of narrative strategies which travellers consequently deployed increasingly drew on the emotional responses of their audience - whether to serve a political purpose, show concern for the darker side to the Industrial Revolution or simply demonstrate the humanitarian interests of the travellers themselves.
In this broad-ranging study, Alison E. Martin draws on a variety of travellers, men and women, canonical and forgotten, to chart the fascinating variety of styles and approaches which mark this highly interdisciplinary genre.
