9780812978834: Henry James: The Young Master

As if Henry James himself were guiding us, we visit old Calvinist New York in the mid-nineteenth century, and share the coming-of-age of a young man whose boldness of spirit and profound capacity for affection attract both men and women to him. We journey with James through Italy and France, witness his first love affair in Paris, and settle with him in London at the height of Empire in the Victorian Age. We scale the heights of London society with him, and as the world opens to James we share with him the experience of writing a series of celebrated and successful novels, culminating with Washington Square (on which the play The Heiress is based) and his masterpiece The Portrait of a Lady. The Washington Post Book World notes: “It is no small ambition to write a biography of James that is commensurate with that master, and Sheldon Novick has done it.”

“Splendidly written . . . Novick has aimed to bring James back to life and he has succeeded brilliantly.”
–The Washington Post Book World

“Like a movie of James’s life, as it unfold moment to moment.”
–The New York Times

“Masterful in bringing James and his world to life.”
–San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle

“Beautifully written, with a grace that enables [Sheldon Novick] to weave his subject’s words in and out of his own with a properly Jamesian suavity . . . Novick’s account gives one a profound respect for James’s persistence and power of will.”
–The New Republic

Review:

In this shrewd, scrupulous biography covering the life of Henry James from his birth until the threshold of his greatest work, Sheldon Novick steers away from the notion that James was a man of sublimated desires, the very figure of the repressed artist who observed life rather than living it. Novick, in fact, argues that the object of James' earliest expression of love was none other than the jurist Oliver Wendell Holmes. Whether one chooses to believe that thesis or not, this is a refreshingly frank discussion of James' early life that sheds new light on his astonishing capacity for literary creation.

From the Inside Flap:

ovick portrays Henry James as a man of great emotional depth--powerful, confident, generous, and above all, courageous. This landmark life follows the author's exceptional biography of Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, of which Edmund Morris said in The New York Times, "masterly . . . perfected to the point of art." of photos.
