Literature - through both its texts and its authors - has often been an important inspiration for tourists. And tourism, in turn, has long inspired literature. Through analysis of literature from North America, the British Isles and Europe drawn from contrasting periods and across a range of genres and forms, Literature and Tourism provides a detailed and in-depth explanation of the changing inter-relationship between literature and tourism.
