Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

At last, a volume of James's major essays and prefaces on fiction that, without ponderous machinery, places them clearly in the context of his literary life. By providing detailed notes on the text and references of each essay as well as brief commentary revealing how James's opinions of that author or subject changed over time, the editors have produced a succinct and readable history of James's ideas about fiction. This volume will be a useful handbook for James teachers and scholars, enjoyable reading of the best of his essays for the amateur aficionado, and essential for all serious students of "the Master" and his art. Highly recommended. Cristanne Miller, English Dept., Pomona Coll., Claremont, Cal.
