This is a video using several multimedia techniques for the purpose of completing a literary project. The subject of the course was Romantic Switzerland and focused on the way tourists, artists and literary authors represented Switzerland. We chose for our subject Lord Byron during his travels through Europe in 1816 and in particular through the majestic Alps. He wrote in a journal a poetical account of his excursion for his half-sister. This journal has here been expressed in audio format, as well as in google map format with the generous addition of pictures giving a clearer idea of what Lord Byron might have seen.
