Tradition in Transition

Katherine S.H. Turner

Oxford University Press

For some 200 years, the ‘imitations’ of Sterne’s A Sentimental Journey which fill the ‘minor fiction’ pages of bibliographies have been subject to critical denigration. This chapter examines one of the most successful of the denigrated ‘imitators’ of A Sentimental Journey. Specifically, it looks at Samuel Paterson’s Another Traveller!, which was hailed by the Monthly and Critical Reviews as a literary and moral tour de force. By exploring the closely related issues of genre and originality, and placing these within a historical framework, new light is thrown on the social and political importance of the ‘sentimental’ travel narrative.
