Considering the writer's perspective: Pre-1900 - The Bazaars of Baghdad

Lesson outcome

In this lesson, we will look at how understanding more about the contexts of Isabella Bird's writing helps us to make further observations about the ideas and attitudes communicated in her account 'The Bazaars of Baghdad'. In order to help us do this, we will look at information about Bird as a person, travel writing as a genre and about attitudes to female travellers. We will then use a writing frame to help us build a systematic response that reflects our new learning.
