Categories: Travel writing
From childhood, Charles Dickens was fascinated by tales from other countries and other cultures, and he longed to see the world. In _Dickens and Travel_, Lucinda Hawksley looks at the journeys made by the author - who is also her great great great grandfather. Although Dickens is usually perceived as a London author, in the 1840s he whisked his family away to live in Italy for year, and spent several months in Switzerland. Some years later he took up residence in Paris and Boulogne (where he lived in secret with his lover). In addition to travelling widely in Europe, he also toured America twice, performed onstage in Canada and, before his untimely death, was planning a tour of Australia. _Dickens and Travel_ enters into the world of the Victorian traveller and looks at how Charles Dickens's journeys influenced his writing and enriched his life.
