Fiche détaillée de "A tour in Switzerland"

Hailed by her contemporaries as possibly her best book, Helen Maria Williams's A Tour in Switzerland offered readers across Europe an original travel narrative which, more than two hundred years later, has lost none of its freshness or interest. Williams (1759-1827) was a controversial British author, salon hostess and radical thinker. While she is best known for her eight volumes of letters defending the French Revolution, A Tour in Switzerland was widely reviewed and translated into four languages, notably in French by the economist Jean-Baptiste Say. Published on the eve of the French invasion of Switzerland in 1798, her book provides rare insight into the mind of a well-informed, curious and politically engaged Revolutionary-era woman writer and exemplifies recent critical assertions that travel writing offered women an important medium of public expression.
