Abstract:

The Innocents Abroad is one of the most famous, prominent and influential American travel books ever written about Europe and the Holy Land. It began as a series of travel letters written by Mark Twain mainly for the Alta California, a San Francisco paper that sponsored his participation in the trip to Europe and the Holy Land in 1867 aboard the steamship Quaker City. On the excursion from New York to Palestine they traveled over 20,000 miles by land and sea through France, Spain, Italy, Morocco, Russia, Turkey and Egypt. In it, the collision of the American "New Barbarians" and the European "Old World" provides much comic fodder for Mark Twain--and a remarkably perceptive lens on the human condition. Gleefully skewering the ethos of American tourism in Europe, Twain's lively satire ultimately reveals just what it is that defines cultural identity.
