Summary A rediscovery of the writings and life of Elizabeth Robins PennellTwelve essays covering the broad range of Pennell's diverse writing career and interestsInterdisciplinary contributions, from critics in English literature, art history, food writing, and American studiesA transatlantic perspective on a transatlantic figure, featuring contributions from both North American and UK contributorsCritical discussion of several Pennell texts that have never been written about (outside of contemporary reviews), including her Life of Mary Wollstonecraft, Our Sentimental Journey, To Gipsyland, and The LoversAn edited collection of interdisciplinary essays on the work of Elizabeth Robins Pennell, the American-born, London-based journalist, author, and aesthete who published (or co-published) over twenty books and a thousand periodical articles between the early 1880s and 1930. Pennell was a pioneer in the emerging field of cycle-touring literature, an important voice in late Victorian art criticism, an authority on James McNeill Whistler, a highly original food writer, and an accomplished biographer. This collection of essays, the first of its kind on Pennell, feature contributions from critics of English literature, art history, food writing, and American Studies. The volume furthers the rediscovery of a forgotten but significant voice in late Victorian letters and makes possible a new wave of Pennell scholarship
