This paper aims to briefly explore images of New York in Henry James? "The American Scene." It collates James' use of images into three sections: (1) morality, manners and the human spirit; (2) masculinity, femininity and culture; and (3) voices in the air. The paper then analyzes these themes with supporting evidence picked from the text.

From the Paper:

"The term "images" perhaps requires a little explanation for clarification as it pertains to this paper. Images of New York may be visual, auditory, olfactory, tactile or gustatory. This means that they appeal to the five human senses. It is also possible to have kinesthetic and abstract images. These seven basic forms of images may also exist together. For example, when Henry James describes New York, his images may incorporate all of the seven forms above at the same time."
