    The famous story behind Jan Morris once James Morris allied with the often breathtaking quality of her prose and the sharpness of her observations make for an always attractive and rather heady brew This collection of articles from the early 1980s that is, pre EU, pre return of China, pre computer ubiquity brings together lengthy, always sharp descriptions of Sydney, Stockholm, Santa Fe, Miami, China, a trip across Europe by car, India, Houston, Montenegro, Aberdeen, Las Vegas and a trip across Texas Even at this distance and I visited most of these place within a decade either side of these essays , the feeling is of a finger being placed fairly securely on the seam that runs from the innate personality of the place, which is pretty well what we ask of a travel writer.However, there are a couple of things that struck me while reading the collection One is that there is a sense of certainty in Morris that from here seems the product of a different age, when empires and their offshoots had created a temporary way of understanding the world that masqueraded as deep rooted ...

    Reading a collection of travel essays written in the early 1980s is a surreal experience So I ll break this discussion into two parts by golly I love Morris writing, and the essays themselves.By golly I love the way Jan Morris writes She constructs beautiful, evocative sentences Describing the approach to Wells As one descends from the spooky heights of Mendip, haunted by speleologists and Roman snails, it lies there in the lee of the hills infinitely snug and wholesome On travelling to China for the first time Of course, wherever you are in the world, China stands figuratively there, a dim tremendous presence somewhere across the horizon, sending out its coded messages, exerting its ancient magnetism over the continents I m no writer I don t have the ability to assess what makes great prose great There s a great piece of graffiti near my house that says I know art, but I don t know what I like I do know that I enjoy Morris writing, that I find her descriptions absorbing and sometimes moving, and that some of the books I read would be improved by their authors having read and considered Morris style Separating the form from the content should not be read as a negative about the content, don t worry The first essay is about Sydney, and as an Australian this was reall...

    In college I took a Travel Writing course, and for it, this was required reading I loved it and plan to re read it 2019, as I still have my copy So glad a different Jan Morris book popped up on my feed and reminded me of Journeys

    This collection of magazine articles, the majority from Rolling Stone, show off Jan Morris ability to encapsulate an entire city in the span of a few pages Of the places I ve been Santa Fe, Las Vegas, Houston and rural Texas are all featured in their own story her analysis is enlightening and, from my perspective, accurate, allowing for the change that may or may not have occurred in the 30 years since these stories were written Jan Morris is exceptional at finding the pulse of a place and connecting its origins to its present.But there felt something lacking, something that kept me disengaged, and after a while I decided it was the lack of characters in her story Rather than being transported to and immersed in these locales, I felt like I was looking at paintings exceptional paintings, but art that nonetheless had me feeling separated from experience by a pane of thick glass It isn t m...
