In both prose and poetry, in diaries, letters and fiction, many Romantic writers chronicled their travels on the European continent and their impressions of foreign customs and characteristics. This course will provide an intimate survey of this varied literature. Opening up questions such as whether pedestrian travel was an exciting allurement or a hard necessity, and to what extent travel offered release from social or familial constraints, discussion will address Romantic writers' self-fashioning in their travel narratives, and the roles of gender and class.
