Product description

Review

' … this Companion shows how far we have come in understanding the literature of knowledge, and in defining its relation to one kind of power.' The Times Literary Supplement

'This Companion not only covers the ground expertly, it also provides a critical apparatus for looking at the genre afresh and coherently. One of the most innovative additions to the series, a mine of key source materials for any information specialists.' Reference Reviews

'It is entirely to the credit of editors Peter Hulme and Tim Youngs, as well as the other contributors to the Cambridge Companion to Travel Writing, that they have produced such a confident, mature, and usable volume … the Companion is a great success and maintains a consistently high standard throughout.' Studies in Travel Writing

'… an important contribution …'. Journeys

Book Description

This book is an introduction to travel writing in English between 1500 and the present. Six essays survey the period's travel writing; six more focus on areas of particular interest; while the final three analyse the theoretical and cultural dimensions to this enigmatic and influential genre of writing.
