The author relates to the gray days of an American wanderer in the British islands, and to the gold of thought and fancy that can be found there. He has an imaginary companion: Shakespeare.
He attempts to depict, in an unconventional manner, those lovely scenes that are intertwined with the name and the memory of Shakespeare, and also to reflect the spirit of that English scenery in general which, to an imaginative mind, must always be venerable with historic antiquity and tenderly hallowed with poetic and romantic association.
The narrative continues the same treatment of kindred themes, referring not only to the land of Shakespeare, but to the land of Burns and Scott.
