    About “Henry James”

    1. Henry James

      Henry James, OM, son of theologian Henry James Sr brother of the philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James, was an American born author, one of the founders and leaders of a school of realism in fiction He spent much of his life in England and became a British subject shortly before his death He is primarily known for a series of major novels in which he portrayed the encounter of America with Europe His plots centered on personal relationships, the proper exercise of power in such relationships, and other moral questions His method of writing from the point of view of a character within a tale allowed him to explore the phenomena of consciousness and perception, and his style in later works has been compared to impressionist painting.James insisted that writers in Great Britain and America should be allowed the greatest freedom possible in presenting their view of the world, as French authors were His imaginative use of point of view, interior monologue and unreliable narrators in his own novels and tales brought a new depth and interest to realistic fiction, and foreshadowed the modernist work of the twentieth century An extraordinarily productive writer, in addition to his voluminous works of fiction he published articles and books of travel writing, biography, autobiography, and criticism,and wrote plays, some of which were performed during his lifetime with moderate success His theatrical work is thought to have profoundly influenced his later novels and tales.

    1. Beset as one avowedly is by vernal distractions—I speak of those amplitudes of exposed bosom, those beguiling expanses of derrière sheathed in lycra, whose appearance heralds, more surely than the robin, the advent of spring—thus beset, I say, it is doubtful whether a mere book review, however eagerly undertaken, could represent the ideal disposal of one’s lamentably scant provision of time and energy.Yeah, I’ll stop now, cuz man, writing like Henry James is almost as exhausting as read [...]


    2. After reading all (yes, all!) his novels, I've concluded that with late Henry James, there is no point trying to analyse and understand every sentence. It's like listening to late Beethoven Quartets - enjoy the sound and don't worry overmuch about how it's made. I thoroughly enjoyed this memoir of Henry's childhood, replete as it is with eccentric family members, the joy of theatre and art, and the obvious happiness of his growing up.


    3. zinger:i in any case can't pretend not to have been most appealed to by that especial phase of our education from which thepedagogic process as commonly understood was most fantastically absent.
