    Abstract

    Discusses the background to Richard Twiss’s tour of Ireland, particularly in the context of travel literature, the reputation of the author and his journey around the country in general. The paper then goes on to outline the observations he made about Dublin during the summer of 1775 and conclude with some remarks on the poetical response to his book, which took the form of four satirical poems.
