Sobre o livro
Literary Travellers from Ann Radcliffe to Evelyn Waugh. From the grand tour to the global village, novelists and poets have made particularly observant travellers. Many writers have been prone to wanderlust, eager to explore the world and draw inspiration from their travels. They recorded their notes in letters, journals, essays and books. In some cases, these became celebrated examples of travel writing, such as George Orwell's 'Homage to Catalonia', but there are many more accounts which remain overlooked. This is a literary journey around the world, through extracts from Arthur Conan Doyle, Aldous Huxley, Charles Dickens, Henry James and Mary Wollstonecraft.
