Star-Spangled Eden: 19th Century America Through the Eyes of Dickens, Wilde, Frances Trollope, Frank Harris, and Other British Travelers - livre d'occasion

When the famed British writer Charles Dickens came to America on a reading tour in 1842, he was instantly repelled by a habit unknown on his side of the water: spitting. "I would be content," he recalled, "even to live in an atmosphere of spit, if they would but spit clean. But when every man ejects from his mouth that odious, most disgusting compound of saliva and tobacco, I vow my stomach revolts, and I cannot endure it." Dickens found much to admire in the early 19th-century American way of life, but its rougher edges made him glad to return to England. The wild and woolly aspects of America gave other British travelers pause too, as James Simmons demonstrates in this set of anecdotal sketches on British travelers to the United States. Simmons doesn't offer much of a thesis, except to note that different visitors responded differently to the unfamiliar surroundings of America: George Ruxton, for instance, reveled in the trying conditions of the Rocky Mountains, where Indian attacks and psychotic trappers were commonplace, while Oscar Wilde was moved to ecstasy at the sight of both the actress Sarah Bernhardt and the porcelain teacups of San Francisco's Chinatown. Other travelers, for their part, found less to like in the New World, complaining bitterly about drunken stagecoach drivers, perilous fauna, and other colorful inconveniences. But whatever their reaction, Simmons writes in this entertaining exercise in cultural history, all these travelers "returned to England 19th century,americas,criticism and theory,customs and traditions,europe,france,history,history and criticism,literature and fiction,modern (16th-21st centuries) Politics & Social Sciences, Carroll & Graf Publishers

Simmons, James C.:

Star-Spangled Eden: 19th Century America Through the Eyes of Dickens, Wilde, Frances Trollope, Frank Harris, and Other British Tra - livre d'occasion

In the fifty years from 1830 to 1880, out of the rowdy optimism of the Jacksonian era and the tragic ruptures of the Civil War, America transformed itself into a modern nation. Within those five decades its frontier, a continent wide and wild, disappeared, but not before it had been experienced by British travelers as varied as Charles Dickens, whose "quarrel with America" assumed epic proportions, and Oscar Wilde, who fell wittily in love with the young country's vitality and diversity. This illuminating social and political, history also includes accounts of the visits made by Frances Trollope, whose acid tome on barbarous Cincinnati made her a London literary sensation in 1832, and the celebrated English actress Fanny Kemble, whose two years on a Georgia plantation made her a confirmed abolitionist. Equally revelatory are the 1846 visit to the Colorado Territory, then a pristine wilderness, by George Ruxton and, only fourteen years later, Richard Burton's stagecoach ride across the Great Plains, where the buffalo had by then virtually disappeared. In bold narrative style, the book also follows William Howard Russell, the London Times correspondent who covered the outbreak of the Civil War, and chronicles the colorful adventures of Frank Harris as a real-life Texas cowboy. Like all, his amazing tale brings new light to the dawn of modern America.
