Travellers' Accounts as Source Material for Irish Historians

C J Woods

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

This guide is an aid to Irish historians on the use of travel narratives as source-material. It features a discussion of factors that need to be considered in analyzing these narratives, notably the identity of the traveller, his or her motives for travel and writing, the period and mode of travel, the itinerary followed and the content itself.

Part Two of the book comprises detailed annotations of more than 100 selected English-language narratives or accounts of journeys or tours made in Ireland from the second quarter of the 17th century to the middle of the 20th century. *** "The 'Itineraries, ' constitute one of the most important and useful parts of the compilation...

.The mode of travel (walking, horseback, train) might at first glance seem rather trivial. However, as Woods points out in his excellent introduction, the manner by which visitors traveled through Ireland had a profound effect on what they saw or experienced." - Irish Literary Supplement, Spring 2015 (Series: Maynooth Research Guides for Irish Local History) [Subject: Irish Studies, History]
