Master Thesis

La représentation des apparences, des attitudes et de la société à travers les récits de voyageuses britanniques en France et en Italie (fin du XVIIIe-début du XIXe siècle)

Abstract : This master thesis is about the representations of appearances, attitudes and societies found in the travel writings of six British women travellers. In France and Italy in the late 18th and the beginning of the 19th century. The sources studied for this master thesis are the writings of six British women travellers during their travels in continental Europe and especially in France and Italy. The aim of this work is to find in these writings references about appearances, attitudes, characters, etc. of the inhabitants of the countries they visited. This work is divided in three parts with an introduction and a conclusion. The first part of this work covers the appearances and the attitudes of the people those women examined during their stay. These observations concerned different ranks of the society going from nobility to beggars and prisoners. The second part of this work is about the observations they made about Italian and French societies. These observations concern different ways of sociability : the opera, the promenade, etc. This part also contain informations about religions (Catholic, Protestant and Jewish). The third part describes the encounter they made during their travels. In this part of the thesis, the first chapter exposes the comparisons those women made between the inhabitants of the countries that they travelled to but also about the main differences they observed between these countries and their homeland. The second chapter in this third part is about the meetings they made with some famous people of their time. They whether met these people personally or they had the chance to observe them at a distance. A part of this chapter is dedicated to animals with whom they met and about their relationships they had with them. Thus, the study of these women's writings allow us to learn more about the observations they made about the attitudes, the manners and the societies in the countries that they visited.
