The Letters of Henry James


These are extraordinary letters… They offer a more direct access to James.The Times Literary Supplement

The letters are avid, irrepressible, by turns mocking and rhapsodic, shifting in style from the ornate to the vernacular, punctuated by parodies of high-flown romances and sketches of local scenes and characters.The New York Times Book Review

From the first letters there is evidence of James’s painterly art, his feelings for the colors and textures, for shapes and tastes, for the blend of impressions physical and psychological that foreshadowed his novels. One follows them with the fascination that attends the development of genius made visible.Saturday Review

Richly rewarding to all readers who wish to understand the complexities of James’s personality and the deep, often austere dedication to his art.American Literature
