Abstract

This essay looks at Henry James's late writings, produced after his 1904-1905 American tour, and emphasizes the transition from the motif of Europe as the place for a "grand tour" enriching the American innocent's experience to the representation of Europe as a detour in an essentially American trajectory. Europe thus paradoxically serves to strengthen what one might call the Jamesian myth of America as place of return and redemption.
