ABSTRACT
The article discusses the experiences and views of the author Henry James concerning immigration and the assimilation of immigrants in the U.S. after 1890. Topics include James' experiences meeting with immigrants such as Italian immigrants and an Armenian immigrant, James' view that assimilation changes immigrants, and the author's argument that James' comparisons of Jews to worms and monkeys are not signs of anti-Semitism, but rather misguided attempts to depict crowded city streets.
