Letters from America by Rupert Brooke( Book )

2 editions published in 1916 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fascinating collection of letters from English poet Rupert Brooke. Description from the introductory note:The author started in May 1913 on a journey to the United States, Canada, and the South Seas, from which he returned next year at the beginning of June. The first thirteen chapters of this book were written as letters to the Westminster Gazette. He would probably not have republished them in their present form, as he intended to write a longer book on his travels; but they are now printed with only the correction of a few evident slips. The two remaining chapters appeared in the New States

A little tour in France by Henry James( Book )

5 editions published between 1885 and 1900 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I am ashamed to begin with saying that Touraine is the garden of France; that remark has long ago lost its bloom. The town of Tours, however, has some thing sweet and bright, which suggests that it is sur- rounded by a land of fruits. It is a very agreeable little city; few towns of its size are more ripe, more complete, or, I should suppose, in better humor with themselves and less disposed to envy the responsibili- ties of bigger places

A small boy and others by Henry James( Book )

1 edition published in 1913 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written when James was 70, "A Small Boy and Others" is a dramatic monologue on a young boy's search for "the aesthetic clue." James finds his evidence in the refined reconstructions of his family life, his imagination, his travel, and his memories of the streets and neighborhoods of 19th-century New York. "A Small Boy and Others" is a very personal study of fate, memory, and the wonder of youthful conciousness and curiosity. It is also a love letter of sorts to New York City in the third quarter of the 19th century

Alli conocera a una bella joven, hija del pescador que le alquila la casa, de quien se enamorara perdidamente.
