This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on transatlantic literature and women's narratives of travel and adventure. It suggests that fictional travel narratives, like their factual counterparts, provide accounts of difference by exploring the politics of location while simultaneously examining localities. What all of the travel narratives explored in this book have in common is a sense that gender is a condition which impinges upon – even determines – the travel experience. The texts of the narratives all contribute to the evolving definitions of transatlantic literature, with important implications for the continued development of Transatlantic Studies as a theorised space.
