A Scripted Continent: British and American Travel-Writers in Europe, c.1825–1875
This chapter focuses on American and British travel writers in Europe during the period from 1825 to 1875. It examines the special considerations and interpretive efforts incumbent upon writing tourists/travellers and describes two main observations that recur frequently in their accounts. These include the observations that the Continental tour seemed to be surrounded and regulated by a variety of guiding texts and that by writing one's own travel record one had to work within the boundaries mapped out by those prior texts.
