The Artistry of Exile

Jane Stabler

Oxford University Press

Chapter 2 examines the twinning of literary and historical figures to shape voluntary and involuntary kinships within exile. Framed by the scandals of Caroline of Brunswick and Lucretia Borgia, the chapter explores the Pisan circle’s expulsion from, and rejection of, English domestic mores. Comparing the travel writing of Anna Jameson, Fanny Kemble, and Lady Blessington, the chapter discusses the way in which Italy becomes the catalyst and backdrop for a succession of English women’s realizations of marital disillusionment in 19th-century literature. The chapter examines the role of the letter and the verse epistle in exiled writing and discusses the work of Walter Savage Landor, particularly his Imaginary Conversations to explore the idea of the trans-historical community of authors in exile. The importance of the book as material object comes under scrutiny
