Fiction

With a mind that took in every nuance of speech, manner, thought and half-thought, Henry James set out to define the restless--and sometimes innocent--American imagination in conflict with the great European tradition. Along the way he discovered the countless hesitancies, betrayals and self-betrayals that make up the true substance of human relationships. This entirely new Portable Henry James provides seven major tales--among them "Daisy Miller," "The Turn of the Screw," "The Beast in the Jungle," and "The Jolly Corner"--as well as travel writing, correspondence, literary criticism, autobiography, passages from longer novels, and a sampling of authorial revisions. Also included are parodies by contemporaries, and tributes by W. H. Auden, Joseph Conrad, T. S. Eliot, Graham Greene, Ezra Pound, Edith Wharton, and Virginia Woolf.
