Literary Tourist on the Loose
This blog is all about adventures to places with literary associations. I published a book called The Literary Tourist in 2006 about the history of interest in writer’s graves, houses, and landscapes in Britain. Ever since then I’ve been publishing more scholarly work in the field. I’ve started to include Europe and America in my field of vision, and have become more and more interested in literary commemoration today and for the future. My blog is a way to reflect on and share this work in progress, connecting with other literary tourists. If you’d like to know more about my scholarly work, see the entries for it on Open Research Online; otherwise, why not come with me on my various adventures, seeking out places celebrated for their connections with writers and thinking about how they’ve been marked, and why.
