Babb, Genie, '"Preserv[ing] the Freshness of the System": itineraries of the Body in Alexander Bain's Rhetoric of Travel', Symbiosis, Vol 8 No 1 (2004), pp. 63-76.

A fascinating account of the travel writing of the Scottish polymath Alexander Bain. It makes not 'home' but 'travel' 'a central metaphor for how the mind functions, and "travel writing" [a] paradigm for effective communication." Powerful impliations for conceptualising transatlantic exchange are implied in her account of Bain's revolutionary compound of rhetoric, psychology and travel narrative.
