After living abroad for 20 years, Henry James returned to his native America and travelled down the East Coast from Boston to Florida. This a journal describing his feelings on the rediscovery of the New York of his childhood, and the growth of modern commercial America. He muses on Thoreau, Hawthorne and Emerson; in Washington, he finds a cityscape devoid of spiritual symbols; in Richmond, thoughts of the civil war haunt him. Published in 1907, this journal also served as a farewell address to the country James would never live in again.

Dopo 20 anni di assenza, nel 1904, l'americano europeizzato Henry James torna nel suo paese. Il suo stato d'animo è un misto di nostalgia, di gioia per il paese ritrovato e di consapevolezza di una distanza incolmabile da un paese in cui non si riconosce. Una riscoperta che prende forma in questo libro-reportage e che nonostante tutto resta un'appassionata dichiarazione d'amore nei confronti di un paese straordinario, dei suoi spazi sterminati, dei suoi corsi d'acqua immensi, accanto a una critica serrata all'evoluzione sociale degli ultimi tempi, all'avidità, al potere dei soldi.

This book is one of Henry James' least well known, which isn't surprising, considering how critical a description of America is to be found in it. James' returned to America in his old age and saw in it a throwaway architecture and a locust-like materialism. He layers thousands of details of observation one at a time, seeing the nation of his birth through the eyes of a writer who left in his youth so he could devote himself to his art, and who came back to the places he knew in his childhood, to register how much they had changed, even within his lifetime. This collection of perceptions is priceless, because we Americans can no longer see the things James' observed. To read a book like this is one of the only ways we can know what has been lost in the hurried development of our culture, how things might have been different, and how weird our society is. ( )

Conscious that the impressions of the very first hours have always the value of their intensity, I shrink from wasting those that attended my arrival, my return after long years, even though they be out of order with the others that were promptly to follow and that I here gather in, as best I may, under a single head.
