Only a few months after his return from Spitzbergen, Marmier's next journey took him to Holland on a mission for Charles de Rémusat, who at that time was Ministre de l'Intérieur. The mandate from Rémusat was in fact a pretext to allow Marmier to complete his studies on the northern countries, and also to write a book on Dutch literature. The resulting volume of Marmier's Lettres sur la Hollande was dedicated to Rémusat. Early in 1842 Marmier left Paris again, this time heading for Russia, Finland, and Poland. His impressions were recorded in a series of outspoken and highly controversial articles in the Revue des Deux Mondes that were then published in book form under the title Lettres sur la Russie, la Finlande et la Pologne.

Keywords:   Holland, Finland, Russian literature, Charles de Rémusat, Dutch literature, Deux Mondes
