Synopsis: Seminar paper from the year 1998 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: Good, University of Vienna (Anglistics/American Studies), course: The Image of German Speaking Countries in American Texts from 1860 to 1930, 28 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The first chapter of this paper presents a survey of Henry James' biography. Special emphasis is given to his experiences in Germany. The reader has to take into consideration that especially his early experiences in relation with Germany shaped his attitude and influenced his image of the country throughout his life. The second chapter gives a brief overview of the historical events that lead to the German unification and the political situation of Germany shortly after the unification, the time, when Henry James visited the country. The presentation of the historical background will help the reader to understand the allusions made in Henry James' travel sketches Homburg Reformed and Darmstadt. The third chapter presents the American opinion of the unification and establishes a connection between Henry James' view and the public opinion, as Henry James' opinion in that matter generally corresponded to the public opinion in America. The fourth chapter explains the background of the two travel sketches followed by a detailed analysis of the texts. The analysis focuses on Henry James' image of Germany and his allusions on the unification. Statements of his letters and his autobiography and comparisons to contemporary travel literature constituted further points of reference for the analysis.
