Italian Hours is a book of travel writing by Henry James published in 1909. The book collected essays that James had written over nearly forty years about a country he knew and loved well. James... More > extensively revised and sometimes expanded the essays to create a more consistent whole. He also added two new essays and an introduction.Italian Hours ends with the phrase, "the luxury of loving Italy," and everything in the book indicates that James enjoyed this luxury to the fullest. But he was by no means a blind lover. His opening essay on Venice, for instance, doesn't gloss over the sad conditions of life for the city's people: "Their habitations are decayed; their taxes heavy; their pockets light; their opportunities few. "Still, James goes on to sketch enough of the beauty of Venice to make it seem a fair compensation.

Second lives aren't usually available, so the novelist says of himself and his fellow artists: "We work in the dark--we do what we can--we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art. "Dencombe, a novelist who has been seriously ill, is convalescing at the English seaside town of Bournemouth.
