Abstract

This essay examines the itinerancy of various literary works of Robert Southey which include an essay for novelist Anna Eliza Bray, a sonnet entitled "To a Goose," and a letter for Rev. J. J. Hornby. He denotes that romantic writers' works resembles wandering gypsies as literary figure indicating idealised itinerancy, and depicts gypsy-like rejection on personal freedom. He stated that Southey's appraisal to Methodism reveals his ability to view the system of itinerancy equally.
