Southey and itinerancy

Howell, Anthony (2011). Southey and itinerancy. Wordsworth Circle, 42(1) pp. 68–72.


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.
