Summary In this book, Catharina Loffler traces the psycho-physical experiences of London walkers in eighteenth-century literature. For this purpose, readings of fascinating, exciting, comical and sometimes disturbing texts grant insights into a culturally, historically and socially significant time in the history of London and make this book a tour of London as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of fictional eighteenth-century urban walkers. Uniting concepts of literary theory, urban studies and psychogeography, Loffler approaches a cross-generic range of literary texts that design uniquely subjective visions and versions of the city. A journey through the fictions and factions of eighteenth-century London, this book provides a compelling read for anyone interested in the history and literature of the English capital. Contents London in Literature Psychogeography and Psycho-Physical Experiences of the City London Walkers Mobility in Eighteenth-Century London Target Groups Lecturers and students of (English) literary and cultural studies, history, urban studies Historians, journalists, cultural scientists, literary scholars, sociologists, urban researchers The Author Catharina Loffler holds a degree of English literature and music, and is a lecturer of English literary and cultural studies at Justus-Liebig-University in Giessen, Germany.
