A Tourists New England: Travel Fiction, 18201920 (Hardscrabble BooksFiction of New England) by Brown, Dona

Travelers to New England in the 19th century discovered an area that they and others had invented: a mythical world of quaint villages, Yankee thrift, and pastoral beauty, or perhaps a sublime world of noble mountain peaks, rushing rivers, and primeval forests. These visions of New England were treated in abundance in fiction, both by writers who helped to create the myths and by those more interested in exposing them.Dona Brown has collected representative writings, beginning with Hawthorne in the 1830s, and ending with Edith Wharton and Sinclair Lewis in the 1920s, along with selections from many other well-known and lesser-known figures. She organizes them into three parts: the first focuses on New Englands much-celebrated scenery; the second explores intimate links between sexual and romantic themes and New England vacations; and the third surveys New England nostalgia. Brown also provides a comprehensive introduction to the history of New England travel and the fiction that describes it.
