Abstract:

"Henry James' Travel: Fiction and Non-Fiction offers a multifaceted approach to Henry James's idea and practice of travel from the perspective of the globalized world today. Each chapter addresses a different selection of James's fiction and non-fiction and offers a different approach towards the ideas that are still with us today: history reflected in art and architecture, the tourist gaze, the museum culture, transnationalism and the return home. As a whole, the book encompasses both early and late fiction and non-fiction by Henry James, giving the reader a sense of how his idea of travel evolved over several decades of his creative activity and shows how thin the line between fiction and non-fiction travel writing really is" --
