    Abstract

    Since their arrival in Europe at the beginning of the eleventh century, the 'Gypsies' have stimulated and fascinated the European imagination, but have also always been perceived as 'other' and marginalised. Focuses on nineteenth- and twentieth-century literary constructions of Romany identity.
