    Om William Wordsworth and the Invention of

    In her study of the opening of the English Lake District to mass tourism, Saeko Yoshikawa examines William Wordsworths role in the rise and development of the region as a popular destination. For the middle classes on holiday, guidebooks not only offered practical information, but they also provided a fresh motive and a new model of appreciation by associating writers with places. The nineteenth century saw the invention of Robert Burnss and Walter Scotts Borders, Shakespeares Stratford, and the Bront Country as holiday locales for the middle classes. Investigating the international cult of Wordsworthian tourism, Yoshikawa shows both how Wordsworths public celebrity was constructed through the tourist industry and how the cultural identity of the Lake District was influenced by the poets presence and works. Informed by extensive archival work, her book provides an original case study of the contributions of Romantic writers to the invention of middle-class tourism and the part guidebooks played in promoting the popular reputations of authors.
