Abstract

Paris is crucial to the sense of place, response, and record spanning Henry James's career over America, England, and 'Europe'. The early essays "Parisian Sketches" and "A Little Tour in France" reach towards "The American Scene" and "A Small Boy and Others" in exploring 'the personal history [...] of an imagination' like Strether's in "The Ambassadors": the 'inside-out' experience achieved through return, which goes beyond the personal.
