Book Overview


Encompassing a period of almost fifty years, the stories of Henry James represent the most remarkable feat of sustained literary creation in modern times. For sheer richness, variety and intensity, they have no equal in fiction, enabling us to trace the evolution of a great writer in the finest detail. This collection reprints all the major stories together with many unfamiliar but equally intriguing pieces that illuminate their more celebrated companions.

Volume 2 takes us from The Private Life of 1892 to James's last story, A Round of Visits, published in 1910. These are the magnificent works of James's maturity--The Death of the Lion, The Altar of the Dead, The Figure in the Carpet, The Turn of the Screw, In the Cage, The Beast in the Jungle, and many others--in which the deepening darkness of the author's life casts a tragic but heroic shadow on the themes of his youth.
