Henry James is said to be merely an observer and interpreter of life and society. I find him so much more. He is one of the few writers whose works take on new life as age advances and maturity allows me to appreciate in more adult fashion the genius of Art. The creation of art is, for me, one of the finest expressions of the human soul -- and no one wrote with more intense interest, curiosity and intelligence than Henry James.
This newer edition of THE PORTABLE HENRY JAMES, superbly edited and introduced by John Auchard, gives us some of James's finest accomplishments as an artist. The book is divided into different categories: I. FICTION; II. REVISIONS; III. TRAVEL; IV. CRITICISM; V. AUTOBIOGRAPHY; VI. CORRESPONDENCE; VII. DEFINITION AND DESCRIPTION; VIII. NAMES; IX. PARODY; X. LEGACY. The final section is a fascinating record of approaches to Henry James from his admirers, and includes
"At the Grave of Henry James," a substantial poem by W. H. Auden,
a selection from HENRY JAMES: AN APPRECIATION by Joseph Conrad,
from IN MEMORY by T. S.Read more ›
