Touring Writers' Shrines and Countries

Alison Booth

  • Considers responses to literature that imbed the text in its writer's life and seek out real places associated with both text and life
  • Restores phases in English-language literary history that continue to resonate today: literary tourism, feature articles and albums about writers' environments, and literary museums
  • Explores the motives and rhetoric rather than industry data of tourism
