  • "Charles Dickens was the most famous of many travelers of his time who journeyed to America, curious about the revolutionary new civilization that had captured the English imagination. His frank, often humorous descriptions in his 1842 account cover everything from his uncomfortable sea voyage to an ecstatic narrative of his visit to Niagara Falls. Yet Dickens is also critical of American society, its preoccupation with money, and reliance on slavery, as well as the rude, unsavory manners of Americans and their corrupt press. Above all, American Notes is a lively chronicle of what w."@en
  • "American Notes is the fascinating travel journal of one of nineteenth-century America's most celebrated visitors: Charles Dickens. A lively chronicle of his five-month trip around the United States in 1842, the book records the author's adventures journeying by steamboat and stagecoach, as well as his impressions of everything from schools and prisons to table manners and slavery. More than a travelogue, it is also a serious discourse on the character and institutions of a young democracy. Dickens distrusted much of what he saw, and he wrote so frankly that the New York Herald dismissed the work as 'the essence of balderdash.' In retrospect, American Notes can be read as the account of a traumatic excursion from which Dickens emerged, both emotionally and politically, a changed man. With a new introduction by Christopher Hitchens."@en

  • "Chronicle of Dickens' first American visit in 1842. Written largely from letters that Dickens sent home to his friend John Forster, "American Notes" sold well but received negative reviews on both sides of the Atlantic. American readers were put off by Dickens' criticism of the American press, American manners, slavery, and his preoccupation with international copyright laws. English readers saw nothing novel in his matter-of-fact observations. Today American Notes offers an interesting glimpse of an America experiencing the growing pains that would eventually lead to civil war. Many of Dickens' observations of the time are hilariously quaint today, particularly his view of the American habit of tobacco chewing."
