Literary Pilgrimages @ Link Wanderlust


If you are a confirmed Janeite or a fan of Jame Austen’s most famous work Pride and Prejudice, you would enjoy a literary pilgrimage to the eighteenth-century house where she lived and wrote. Of interest is the walnut table, which evokes a particularly visceral reaction among die-hard readers.

Literary pilgrimages often pay homage to the author or the routes of their literary characters. A book by Sarah Baxter called Literary Places has been written dedicated to this idea. So readers can visit Saint Petersburg where Raskolnikov strolled or the courthouse in Monroeville, Alabama, where Nelle Harper Lee lived. or take a trip to the wild moors where Heathcliff roamed

Check out this list of literary destinations.
