Summary

A travelogue detailing Charles Dickens’s tour of North America

In January of 1842, Charles Dickens and his wife, Kate, traveled from Liverpool to Boston. At the time, Dickens had already attained a tremendous level of literary success and fame, and the author hoped his travels would help him gain insight into the New World that had captivated the English imagination. Over the ensuing 6 months, Dickens explored the East Coast and Great Lakes regions of the United States and Canada, observing life on the opposite side of the Atlantic from a distinctly British viewpoint.
 
By turns humorous, critical, witty, and incisive, this travelogue is a unique and keen look at 19th-century North America.
