William Beckford (1760-1844) moest van zijn moeder een Grand Tour maken toen zij ontdekt had dat hij niet alleen sprookjes schreef, maar ook liefdesbrieven aan jongens. In 27 brieven, gericht aan zijn tekenleraar Alexander Cozens, maar nooit als zodanig verzonden, beschrijft hij niet alleen zijn ervaringen uit 1780-1781 op deze reis maar vooral ook de romantische dagdromen waarin hij steeds vervalt. De lezer volgt hem o.a. per trekschuit door de Lage Landen, wier bewoners volgens Beckford in hun wijde broeken een dolfijnenstaart verbergen!
