The essays collected in the volume cover a wide selection of texts representing different genres, literary currents and ideological perspectives to offer diverse interpretative insights into the cultural significance of travel and foreignness in British writing of the nineteenth century. Taken together, they aptly display the complexity of attitudes towards the Other as well as the diversity of textual strategies applied to depict the experience of travel and cultural difference.

Keywords: British literature, 19th century, travel, otherness, textual strategies.
