Anotace

A new edition of one of the most influential travel books of the nineteenth century, a witty, satirical, and entertaining dissection of American manners. Combines a travelogue with still shocking descriptions of the treatment of slaves as Trollope anatomizes all levels of society. The edition considers the work's transatlantic success and its political significance at a time of social change in England. Includes a selection of the original illustrations by August Hervieu. Includes a contextualizing chronology, useful notes, and up-to-date bibliography. 'it appeared to me that the greatest and best feelings of the human heart were paralyzed by the relative positions of slave and owner' In Domestic Manners of the Americans, Frances Trollope recounts her travels through America between 1827 and 1830, describing her voyage up the Mississippi from New Orleans, a two-year stay in Cincinnati, and a subsequent tour of Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York. A transatlantic best-seller on publication in 1832, its forthright criticisms of American manners encompassed spitting, religious extremism, ladies' dress, the relentless pursuit of money, and the unequal treatment of women, slaves, and Native Americans. Witty, satiric, and hugely entertaining, Trollope also had a serious purpose in warning her compatriots of the consequences of democratic freedoms at a time of great social change in England. Deploring slavery and the hypocrisy that sanctioned it, she fuelled abolitionist debate on both sides of the Atlantic and so impressed Mark Twain that fifty years later he considered her book to be the most accurate portrait of American life in the nineteenth century.
