About the Author

NICOLA J. WATSON has taught at Oxford and Harvard, and is currently Senior Lecturer in Literature at the Open University. Her publications include Revolution and the Form of the British Novel, 1790-1825 (1994), At the Limits of Romanticism: Essays in Cultural, Materialist, and Feminist Criticism (with Mary Favret, 1994), an edition of Walter Scott's The Antiquary (2002) and England's Elizabeth: An Afterlife in Fame and Fantasy (with Michael Dobson, 2002).


'absorbing, well-researched and informative' - The Yorkshire Post

'pioneering exceptionally accessible and entertaining work of scholarship' - Samantha Matthews, TLS

'Watson has produced a book likely to interest readers in both the literary and tourist domains, and a study worth putting on the shelves of academic and public libraries.' - Stuart Hannabuss, Library Review

'She [Watson] writes from an agreeably personal standpoint, having undertaken a good deal of such touring on her own account.' - Michael Irwin, The Thomas Hardy Journal

'Combining exemplary historical scholarship with considerable critical and theoretical sophistication, she [Watson] offers sensitive readings on the one hand of the texts and literary careers that have brought about significant forms of literary tourism, and on the other, of the literary-touristic experience itself...this is an impressive study that will prove useful not just to specialists in tourism and travel writing, but to all scholars of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature and culture.' Carl Thompson, British Association for Romantic Studies Bulletin& Review
