This book is an important reminder that the highest form of patriotism is in fact looking with clear eyes at your countrys flaws, writing down what you see so that you can begin to change them.” J.S.FoundA beautifully detailed view of the early American Republic.

I found the most amazing parts to be Dickens depictions of traveling itself, and also the insight we get into Charles Dickens, the person. American Notes very much reminded me of Mark Twains travel books. But, of course, the best of American Notes is Dickens writing-his descriptions, his characterizations, the way he puts words together.

Elena“Dickens had first journeyed to America in January 1842, eagerly anticipating the land of liberty and liberalism. Americans were just as exhilarated to catch a glimpse of the 30-year-old British writer. The tour, however, quickly degenerated into an experience of mutual disdain and recriminations.

Dickens disliked the intrusiveness of the American public, who stared at him and his wife, and the press, which reported his every move. To make matters worse, once he returned to England, Dickens published even harsher views of the United States in American Notes., particularly condemning the American habit of spitting and the institution of slavery.

Americans were furious, with critics panning American Notes and residents of New York City burning copies of Martin Chuzzlewit. Nevertheless, Dickenss later publications gained a wide readership in America.” New York Times“Mr Dickens is a young man who knows nothing of this world, of society, or of government, but what he picked up as a flash reporter and penny-a-liner when connected with some of the most scurrilous of the vile presses with which London abounds.

No person of ordinary intelligence can get up from the perusal of these notes without feeling that the great aim of the writer is produce the impression among the English readers that he is really somebody, and possesses all those niceties of feeling and sensitiveness of contact with the vulgar mass, so frequently assumed by the low-bred scullion unexpectedly advanced from the kitchen to the parlour.” Courier and Enquirer, 17 November 1842“This travelogue of Dickenss 1844 Italian sojourn retains the wit and sumptuous detail of his novels.” Publishers WeeklyAMERICAN NOTES FOR GENERAL CIRCULATION features the classic travelogue by Charles Dickens in a specially designed edition for kindle.

This book will intrigue and delight you. Read it as it’s meant to be read: complete, unabridged and illustrated. This edition also includes Dickens account of his trip to Italy: PICTURES FROM ITALY.
