Summary
Offering an introduction to the new and vibrant field of literary tourism together with a wide-ranging selection of cutting-edge cross-disciplinary research, this volume is indispensable for all students and scholars of nineteenth-century literature and culture, but especially for those with interests in travel writing, literary biography, the relations of literature and place, and the production of national identity through literary heritage. Together these essays explore the rise of interest in visiting and memorializing literary places in the nineteenth century, examining the development of writers2 homes and haunts as tourist destinations and itineraries, and the associated rise of the album, literary biography, the travelogue, and the guidebook, amongst other novel genres. Ranging across Britain, continental Europe and America, it provides fascinating insights into the reception of, amongst others, Petrarch, Shakespeare, Burns, Byron, Wordsworth, Scott, Letitia Landon, Hawthorne, Dickens, Gaskell, Hardy, Stowe, Haggard and Kipling by British and American tourists
