Italian Hours

Henry Jr. James

1stPublisher: Penguin BooksFormat: Paperback

Henry James' passion for Italy led him to visit the country 14 times and to set much of his best known fiction in Venice, Florence and Rome. Despite this, his “Italian Hours” essays have never received much attention. They were written on travels in Italy from 1872 to 1909. This edition sets out to make these essays accessible by establishing their historical, political, literary and artistic context. It aims to help modern readers appreciate that the Italy they envision when they read works such as “The Portrait of a Lady” or “The Wings of the Dove” is not necessarily the same Italy that fascinated Henry James.
