Letters From America: Travels in the USA and Canada
'So it was with a fairly blank mind, and yet a of hope of understanding - or at least of seeing - something remarkably fresh, that I woke to hear we were in harbour, and tumbled out on deck at six of a fine summer morning to view a new world.'
May 1913 - the poet Rupert Brooke set off on a year long expedition of North America. He sent his impressions home in a series of letters, written for publication in the Westminster Gazette.
He is blunt in his judgements on society, business and cities, playful in his accounts of Anglo-American relations and humbled by the vastness of the landscape.
