The Literary Guide and Companion to Northern England is the third and final guide in Cooper’s light-hearted and informative travel collection.

As Cooper explains in the preface to the first volume: “This book was written for the person who unabashedly loves travel, loves England, and loves English literature. In short, for somebody remarkably like the person I was when I began to plan my first trip to Britain and looked for just such a book.”

Cooper’s writing project grew with his enthusiasm for his task. Soon there were several more trips to England, more months at the British Museum, and not one book manuscript, but three.

Like other Cooper books, this guide to northern England is wonderfully helpful to the visitor, rich in anecdotal detail, and cast with Britain’s finest literary figures — in this case, Johnson, Boswell, Lord Byron, D.H. Lawrence, the Brontë sisters, Tennyson, Shelley, Wordsworth. There are road maps for the motorist, walking tours of towns of particular interest, and clear directions for getting from one place to another — scenes of courtships, weddings, meetings (chance or planned) that made their mark on our literary heritage.

About the Author:

Robert M. Cooper was a professor of English at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. Born in Manchester, he lived and did research on southern England.

From Library Journal:

Whether the thought of northern England in literature conjures up romantic images of Cathy and Heathcliff on the moors or the grim industrial nightmare of George Orwell's The Road to Wigan Pier, literary-minded travelers to the north of England will find this book a fascinating companion. Cooper, a late professor of English at Rhodes College in Tennessee and the author of The Literary Guide to Middle England (Ohio Univ. Pr., 1993. reprint), delivers the work of a knowledgeable enthusiast rather than the brisk, factual reportage of the professional travel writer. Arranged geographically (starting at Shropshire and moving north to the Scottish border), entries are short essays discussing the relations of writers, both native and visitors, to a town, city, or county. References to more recent authors, e.g., native daughters of Sheffield, A.S. Byatt and Margaret Drabble, are not included. Nor is there any information on food and lodging; this book will not replace standard guides. Recommended for public libraries.
