Summary
Enlightenment Travel and British Identities is the first-ever collection of essays devoted to the influential eighteenth-century travel writer, antiquarian and naturalist, Thomas Pennant. Offering a truly multidisciplinary range of perspectives, the volume explores the complex networks of informants who helped Pennant undertake and write up the journeys behind his popular Welsh and Scottish Tours. Widely read and much imitated, the Tours indisputably helped bring about a richer, more complex understanding of the multiple histories and cultures of Britain at a time when ‘Britishness’ was itself a fragile and developing concept. Enlightenment Travel and British Identities seeks to address the comparative neglect of Pennant’s travel writing by bringing together researchers from literary criticism, art history, Celtic studies, archaeology and natural history. Attentive to the visual as well as textual aspects of Pennant’s topographical enquiries, it rehabilitates a neglected aspect of the Enlightenment in relation to questions of British identity, offering a new assessment of an important chapter in the development of domestic travel writing.--
