In Travels in My Homeland (1846), Almeida Garrett—the most prominent figure of Portuguese Romanticism—narrates his thirteen-day trip to Santarém, wittily intermingling personal experiences with a sentimental novel. Influenced by Laurence Sterne’s Sentimental Journey, Garrett’s masterpiece paved the way for great writers like Eça de Queirós and Machado de Assis and helped foster modern Portuguese prose. This collection, the first in English, supplies comparative contexts by leading scholars that illuminate topics such as narrative technique, gender relations, women and nationalism, literary hypertext, travel writing and visual culture, literature and music, and Romantic fiction and classical literature.
