First published posthumously, Stendhal’s travel notes on his 1838 journey to southern France contain descriptions of cities such as Bordeaux, Toulouse, and Marseilles that are peppered by numerous personal digressions, anecdotes, and cultural musings. A captivating and pioneering work of the travel-writing genre, it provides an illuminating perspective on the south of France in the 19th century and the phenomenon of tourism in general.
