Itinerant Observations in America
University of Delaware Press, 1998 - Počet stran: 137
Before he became editor of the London Magazine and a prolific novelist, Edward Kimber traveled to America and recorded his impressions. Itinerant Observations in America provides a vivid record of life in colonial America. This edition presents the work as it was first published sporadically during the mid-1740s in the London Magazine. Also included are edited and annotated versions of the poems that Kimber wrote during his American sojourn. Kimber's descriptions of the natural landscape are filled with poetic imagery, while his descriptions of the towns, buildings, and fortifications are realistic and original. For many places he visited, especially coastal Georgia, Kimber's narrative provides unique evidence concerning their contemporary appearance.
