Literary Heritage of the British Isles Vacation Packages


The British Isles, a geographic region comprised of England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland, has a rich history of literary excellence. The history, fantasy, politics, romance, and tradition of the isles have been brought to life, historicized, and evaluated by authors who span centuries. Try to imagine, impossible as it seems, a world without the oral tradition of Beowulf or masterpieces from authors Chaucer and Shakespeare, Romantic poets like Lord Byron, Wordsworth, and Percy Shelley, satirists Swift and Dickens, Robert Louis Stevenson, the whimsical Beatrix Potter, scandalous Irish Dandy Oscar Wilde, Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, or contemporary darling J.K. Rowling … among countless others! On the whole, the canon of literature produced by authors who hail from the British Isles illuminates historical narratives and literary innovations – and will no doubt continue to be an important cultural phenomenon.
